Basketball is one of the fastest growing sports at St Benedict’s with an increased number of boys participating in every age group (Under 11-Under 13). With St Benedict’s basketball growing, so is the Gauteng league, with ten schools participating every week. Matches will include Wednesday fixtures against our fellow Catholic schools, while on Saturdays we compete in festivals with our fellow private schools.
The first term in 2016 was a very successful season with our U13 teams going unbeaten through the term which included the title of the Inter-Catholic tournament. All the hard work from our qualified and experienced coaches is starting to pay off.
We look forward to our annual basketball tour in October where we will tour Kwazulu Natal for the second year in row. We look to play against traditional basketball schools in Pietermaritzburg and Durban where we will look to grow our relationship with these schools.
2016 has been a very successful year for Bennies basketball, and we look forward to a great third term which will include a number of festivals as well as the annual St Benedict’s tournament.
Yours in basketball.
