GHANA : All Set for Choice Ball 2007

by Kofi Owusu Aduonum

Choice FM is set to once again hold its annual inter-school's basketball competition on December 24 at the Aviation Social Centre in Accra. As part of its effort at promoting the "lesser known sports" in Ghana, Choice 102.3 FM in 2003 instituted an annual basketball competition for second - cycle institutions in the country.

Over the past few years, this initiative has enjoyed tremendous patronage with a record of abut 5000 participants during last year's event (2006). This year a larger crowd is expected as the competition continues to grow.

Traditionally, prizes will be awarded to teams that perform well, individuals who excel during the competition, as well as a special prize for the schools with the highest level of discipline (as a way of enforcing the campaign for greater discipline in society). Also a special all star team will be formed consisting of players of the various schools who put up exceptional performances and this team will help promote the sport by engaging in games across the country and beyond.

After the tournament, there will be an entertainment package for the teams and their supporters at the same venue. Choice Fm finest Dj's such as DJ Kwame, Master J and DJ Adviser and Michael Offei together with all the station's crew are expected to grace the occasion.
