The 3rd Annual City-Wide 5 vs 5 Basketball Tournament will be taking place on Saturday, May 2nd at Guildford Recreation Centre (15105 105 Avenue, Surrey).
Last year was a huge success with 28 teams registered (3 Girls teams, 15 junior boys teams and 10 senior boys teams) and over 1,000 attendees. The Terry Fox Ravens captured the Senior Boys crown with an MVP honor going to their stand out point guard Jose R.
The tournament featured many players who have now gone on to play at a collegiate level including Reng D who had this to say about the tournament, “Winning the MVP at this tournament two years ago with my team was a great feeling.”
