Pre-season friendly matches meant to serve as trial for the upcoming men’s basketball league “Kwik’s Basketball League 2018” announced.
League organisers, Play for Deprived Children Nepal (PDCN), made the announcement through a facebook note today.
The facebook note reads, “There will be the trial match on 8th February (Thursday) and 9th February (Friday) to avoid any mismanagement during the game.”
“We like to use this opportunity to identify any unforeseen errors that might happen during the real game”, it adds.
It is mandatory for Kwik’s Basketball League 2018 participants, according to the note.
All of the friendly matches will take place in Bhaktapur district. The venue for the friendly matches has been chosen strategically as PDCN aims to decentralize basketball in the long run. PDCN president, Namit Thapa, said that it was also the sponsors’ wish to see it outside Kathmandu district where all eight league venues are located.
The organisers have made transport arrangement from Dashrath Rangashala to the venue. The bus, meant primarily for the participating teams, leaves at 11:00am. However, Thapa said that if there is space left, limited number of fans may be able to hitch a ride. For most fans they will have to make their own transport arrangements.
