Eight days of basketball concluded at Langley Events Centre as the 2022 BBall Nationals Club Basketball Championships crowned the last of its champions.
More than 180 teams from nine provinces and one territory took part, with 23 divisions ranging from U10 to U18 teams, plus two open men’s and women’s categories.
“We are pleased to have hosted more than 180 teams this year and look forward to making the event larger and greater each year,” said Matthew Raimondo, the Program and Events Coordinator for BBall Nationals. “Thank you to all the clubs who competed, and we look forward to seeing you next year.”
The girls’ competition ran July 30 to August 2 while the boys took to the court August 4 to 7.
It all started in 2017, with 30 girls’ teams competing in three age groups (U13, U15 and U17) while the boys’ competition was launched in 2018 with 90 teams participating that inaugural year.
With U-sports scouts in attendance, the event is seen an opportunity for the more than 1,000 athletes playing to demonstrate their skills and improve their chances of being signed.
