POSTED BY:

India's rising basketball powerhouse Haryana is all set to host its first ever All India Basketball Tournament for Men from 2 to 6 August 2016.

The tournament will be organised by the Basketball Club of Haryana (BCH) under the aegis of the Haryana State Basketball Association and the Basketball Federation of India.

The eight participating teams are:

ONGC, Dehradun (Group A)

Indian Railways (Group B)

Punjab (Group B)

Indian Army (Group B)

Income Tax, Chennai (Group A)

Indian Air Force (Group A)

Haryana (Group A)

Basketball Club of Haryana (Group B)

The teams have been divided into two preliminary groups A and B. Matches will be played in a league cum knockout basis every day from 4pm to 10pm in the indoor hall of the Rajiv Gandhi Sports Complex in Rohtak. The top two teams from each Group progress to the semifinals, followed by the finals on 6th August.

This is a prize money tournament and the winning team will receive INR 1,00,000/- and a trophy while the runners up get INR 50,000/-. Additionally, every man of the match will be awarded INR 2100/- and the tournament most valuable player (MVP) will get INR 5100/-. Individual winners will also receive trophies, and additionally the MVP will be gifted a full Rido basketball set.

'We are excited to bring finally India's biggest international players and club teams to Haryana. There are many All India Tournaments in the south and we felt that northern states too should play host. We hope this encourages our Haryana youth to pursue basketball careers,' said Mr Sudhir Hooda, organising secretary, who is also the newly appointed head coach of the Indian Railways men's team. 'Since there are two Haryana teams in the fray, this will be great exposure to local players against India's best squads.'

'We plan to grow this event year on year and include women teams as well in the future,' said Advocate Navdeep, Secretary of Basketball Club of Haryana. 'We have already roped in sponsors and we thank them for their support. We hope this event will be a grand success for all stakeholders.'

The tournament sponsors are Shiv Naresh, LPS Bossard, Kalinga University (Naya Raipur, Chhattisgarh), Pahli Khabar, Desan International ('Rido'), D2M Hotel, Disha and Scholars Rosary.

The opening ceremony will be held on 2nd August from 3:30 pm onwards at the Rajiv Gandhi State Sports Complex, Sector-6, Rohtak followed by the inaugural set of matches.

Shri Chander Parkash (IAS), Commissioner, Rohtak will be the chief guest at the inauguration ceremony, while Shri Chander Mukhi Sharma, Secretary-General of the Basketball Federation of India will be the guest of honour.

The stars who are expected to be seen in action include current India internationals such as Vishesh Bhriguvanshi, Amritpal Singh, Yadwinder Singh (ONGC), Haryana's very own Narender Grewal and Joginder Singh (Indian Air Force), Akilan Pari and Rikin Pethani (Income Tax, Chennai).

'I am in India to improve my game and prove it to NBA coaches' - Satnam SIngh - 11 hours ago
Be it on court or off it, Satnam Singh Bhamara stands out from the rest. And that's for two reasons - his towering height of 7-foot-2 inches and him being the first Indian-born player drafted into NBA. And here, at the 68th Senior National Basketball Championship, which is being held in Chennai, it's no different. He is much in the limelight - and the moment he's off the court, there's always a bunch of fans waiting to take selfies with him. But the basketball star has no qualms about it,...   [read more]

FIBA World Cup Mens Qualifier - Days ahead - 2 months ago
Thirty-seven years ago, in the pleasant late-summer in Moscow, Indian basketball made history. A series of fortuitous circumstances-including a golden generation of Indian basketball stars and a series of international diplomatic breakdowns-made India an unlikely entrant in the Men's basketball fray of the 1980 Summer Olympics. India were the weakest team in the tournament and lost all seven of their games. Still, it was the competitive high-point in Indian hoops, an achievement that has...   [read more]
