To further drive and promote the game of basketball among young females within Delta State & environs, former D'Tigress players (Nkechi Akashili & Magdalene Ukato) decided to collaborate with Emmanuel Gbowie, Prince John Owhe, Coach Kenny, Yomi Elufisayo and TitansBasket with the view of launching the first ever Warri Female Basketball League.
The league is scheduled to run from Saturday 5th September to the last week of October, 2020.
The preliminary matches will hold at Don Domingoes College, Warri.
Playoffs will be based on home & away while the finals will hold at NNPC Junior Staff Club Basketball Court.
This excellent initiative conceived by the organizers is highly commendable considering the need to positively engage female youths by providing them with a platform to express their passion and helping them to channel their energies appropriately.
The league will also assist the state's sports commission with ready talents for the planned National Youth Games and Sports Festival.
Note: In compliance with established health protocols, the organizers have put in place all requisite safety components & Covid-19 guidelines that will be strictly adhere to by all participants and officials throughout the duration of the league.
Wishing all the participating teams a competitive, friendly and splendid championship.
Catch you on the rebound!!
