Teenagers wanting to get active over the summer holidays are being invited to put their dribbling skills to the test during a free basketball competition.
The B2B Summer Triple C – a two-a-side Basketball event for boys and girls aged 13 to 19 – takes place at Ernest Bevin College, in Beechcroft Road, Tooting, from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, July 28.
Organisers of the free-to-enter event, which is supported by Wandsworth Council, are calling on young people to enter a team (with a maximum of four per squad). Those taking part will be in the running to win prizes, trophies, medals and certificates.
B2B’s priority is to provide young people with an extra-curricular activity to keep them focused in a positive environment.
For more information and to register for the competition visit www.playb2b.net. To see a video of a previous event in neighbouring Merton go to www.bmetv.net/video/1864/b2b-basketball-half-courts-in-merton.
Activities and courses are also being held in the borough's youth clubs for young people aged 11 to 19, or up to 25 years old for young people with disabilities.
