As you might remember from, the SA team went to a four nations tournament involving Portugal, Angola and DRC held in Angola. They didn’t win any games there but they gained some valuable experience. The U16 Boys and Girls national teams went to Zimbabwe where they took part in the Zone 6 games, they did very well against some of our neighbours, I am still waiting for feedback from the powers that be regarding that. The Men’s senior team will be holding a camp starting next week and there are a few surprises in the players called up to attend. I will get you an official list as soon as possible. And coach Flosh is back from Europe and we hope to get feedback from him on his trip so that we can share it with our readers. By the way SA might actually get a Wildcard to the African Championship in Libya in August so they need to get ready for any eventuality…

Currently our USSA (university) men’s team is in Serbia where they will be taking part in the World Student games hosted by FISU in Belgrade and I believe that they had a friendly game against Greece on Tuesday 30 June, I will get the scores for you and try and keep you updated as far as the tournament goes..

The GBA recently had an AGM and we are still waiting for feedback on that particular event. The GBL is in recess but the boys at GBL are still on the hot seat trying to get the 2nd round off to a perfect start. You can obtain the latest GBL fixture on mybasketball or on the GBL website:

The Pretoria High School season ended on a high at St Marys. Once again DSG hosted a great day full of action and drama from U14 to Open from most of the schools in the area… Pretoria Boys High School who were undefeated during the regular season and were favorites to win the boys open section were defeated by St Albans College. In the end Willowridge High School won the open section, while Pretoria High School for Girls won the ladies section. Read more on the website under high school

I am looking forward to the Basketball without Borders this year and in the same breath WELL DONE to the LAKERS for winning the NBA championship and the man Kobe proving he can do it without Shaq. Meanwhile, Shaquille O Neal has teamed up with Lebron James at the Cleveland Cavaliers in what could be the missing piece to get the ring on Lebron’s finger.. This upcoming NBA season will be interesting… Can’t wait…

Last but not least, Mybasketball will be undergoing some revamp in the coming weeks so don’t be shocked if you log on one day and you can’t find yourself.. We are once again listening to the readers and trying to optimize the service. Big up to Darren Gorton for his work on this current project and I know that my input has been minimal this time but his efforts deserve to be commanded. We are still busy tweaking some things but you can look forward to a better surfing experience…
