Dominica to explore the possibility of hosting the 2011 Winward Islands Basketball Championship
The Executive Members of the Dominica Basketball Amateur Association (DABA) is expected to meet with officials from the Sports Division to decide whether Dominica should accept the bid to host the Windward Islands Basketball Tournament, next year.
Public Relations of the DABA Mr. Mickey Joseph made this disclosure while speaking to SAT TV News at the close of the 2010 Regular Basketball Season.
He said “we probably have to meet with the Minister of Sports as well as the Prime Minister and officials from the Sports Division to decide whether we will be able to host the Championship.”
The PRO said that they have already spoken to the Winwards Islands Lotto to see if they could assist us in making the event a reality.
He said that they are also in the process of organizing a women team to participate in an upcoming regional tournament in Antigua.
“After the Official closing ceremony of the 2010 Regular Basketball Season we initially planned on taking a break, but there are some young ladies who really want us to organize a female tournament,” said Mr. Joseph.
He went on to say that they will also be trying to organize a female Basketball Team to represent Dominica at an upcoming tournament in Antigua; a tournament that they have participated in some three (3) or four (4) years ago.
