Second basketball high-performance centre opens
Soon after its opening, the high-performance centre in Walvis Bay hosted a mini basketball event in honour of the Olympic Day. Around 50 players, coaches and teachers from various primary schools took part. The boys and girls learned the basics of dribbling, passing and shooting; harnessing their new horned skills in various contests and games.
Through the support of the German Federal Foreign Office and the German Olympic Sports Confederation, Namibia Basketbal Federation handed over 30 basketballs to the Erongo Basketball Association (10 balls for the high-performance center and 20 balls for the mini basketball program). Other equipment like pumps, whistles, a scoreboard and a shot clock were handed over too.
