A huge weekend ahead

THIS weekend will be a huge one for basketball in Coffs Harbour with 59 junior and two senior games of representative basketball to be played.

The Termimesh Suns State League men and women will take on the Tamworth Thunderbolts on Saturday night, with the girls hitting the courts at 6.00pm followed by the men at 8.00pm.

The Suns teams are itching to get back on the court after cancelled games last weekend against Grafton and Port Macquarie. Both the men's and women's teams have found good form over the past few games, and with the competition well into its season, the results of the match-up on Saturday night could well determine the semi-final teams.

Fans are urged to get along and support the Suns.

Adding to the weekend, Coffs Harbour will host 59 games of basketball in the Northern Junior League division 2 competition.

Teams from Tamworth, Quirindi, Armidale, Ballina, Lismore, Inverell, Bellingen, Kempsey, Taree and Grafton will join Coffs Harbour in this second round of competition.

Now that the PCYC no longer has its basketball court, games will be held at the John Paul College indoor court and Sportz Central.

As a result of this competition, there will be no school basketball competition this Saturday.
