Summer In The City Basketball At UWinnipeg

WINNIPEG, MB – The University of Winnipeg will be the best place to get your basketball game on this summer, as the University plays host to the Summer in the City Basketball League every Saturday starting July 9, 2011 through August, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm. This event is sponsored by the Inner City Junior Wesmen program and welcomes boys and girls of all ages. There is no cost to participate.

Erfan Nasajpour, UWinnipeg Wesmen All Star guard for 5 years, now playing professionally in the Iranian Basketball Super League, will be joining in the fun. Every Saturday, along with current Wesmen players, he will be providing coaching instruction and mentoring players.

“Leagues like Summer in the City and the Heart of the City tournament we held earlier this year are key to developing meaningful programs for inner-city kids,” said Bob Axworthy, Inner-City Junior Wesmen coach and tournament organizer. “We invite everyone to come out, have some fun and support a worthwhile program.”

The action gets underway this Saturday, July 9 at 12:00 noon inside the Duckworth Centre on Spence Street.
