In the space of seven days, Nungua Warehouse Company Limited and BetWay have contributed significantly to basketball’s development in Ghana.

At a time basketball struggles for funds to aid development, the corporate organizations have funded separate basketball projects in different parts of the West African country.

Both Accra-based firms have funded repainting playing surfaces in Ghana’s port cities Tema and Takoradi respectively.

Nungua Warehouse committed finances to have the Tema Community 4 Court repainted as a means to improve the Tema Community Basketball League venue per Chief Operating Officer Wendell Otoo.

BetWay followed suit by painting Takoradi Technical University’s Court ahead of the institution hosting a club competition sponsored by the betting firm.

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of the companies, conditions of the aforementioned playing surfaces have improved markedly.

Tema League outfit Nungua Coldstore won the BetWay Tournament ahead of teams likes Hoops from Cape-Coast and Takoradi based Oil City Dragons. The team was presented with a trophy and 2,500 Ghana Cedis.

2016 Tema League Champions Coldstore is bankrolled by Nungua Warehouse.
