More than 70 teams from throughout New Providence came together this past weekend for the official opening of the Street Legends Community Basketball League, which is sponsored in part by the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture and Urban Renewal this year.

The event, which will run from June 15 to August 30, is also being held in conjunction with Vitamalt. In addition to basketball teams from New Providence constituencies, 14 Family Island teams will be represented.

President of Street Legends, Wilton Russell, said this year marks nine years since the community basketball league has been in existence.

“Street Legends and Urban Renewal, in conjunction with Vitamalt, presents ‘Bridging the Gap - Season #4’,” said Russell. “During the 10-week competition, 38 constituencies will participate while we pay tribute to the late Charles Maynard, former Minister of Youth, Sports & Culture. We are delighted to have Vitamalt as a main sponsor, for the sixth consecutive year. Their participation has been outstanding and I would like to say a special thank-you to them.”

Stacy Mackey, Vitamalt Brand Manager, noted that Vitamalt’s sponsorship of this community basketball league is an acknowledgment that sports is an important recreation for young people throughout The Bahamas.

“Vitamalt is delighted to partner with Street Legends and Urban Renewal and their effort in promoting wholesome sporting activities is one we endorse fully,” she said.

New to this year’s program is the Baby Legends Division - ages 5-7 boys and girls, as well as ages 8-11 boys and girls. This division is free for all participants. The Kendal G.L. Isaacs National Gymnasium came alive this past weekend with representatives of most of the teams in New Providence present, along the baby legends.
