Welcome to the 2020 St John’s College Basketball Tournament – a four day festival of fun from 27 February to 1 March.
Entrance is R20 per person each day and will get you into all games at St John’s College and Wits. Tickets are available at the gates, or through Webtickets.
The St John’s College Basketball Tournament, now in its 14th year, began with a vision to offer school boys the opportunity to play more games. We aim to give schools who don’t typically get a chance to play against each other the chance to do so, and for our local teams to play touring sides.
This year we are proud to host 24 U19, 20 U15 and 12 U13 teams joining us from across South Africa as well as from Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, with a new entry from Zambia. We welcome you all.
Games are played over four days on the St John’s College courts and the indoor courts at Wits Hall 29 and the Old Mutual Sports Hall. The final games will be played at the Old Mutual Sports Hall at Wits. There will be tuck shops available at both venues and La Bouqueria in Parktown North will be running a courtesy shuttle from St Patrick Rd at St John’s and Yale Rd at Wits on Thursday and Friday. The shuttle departs hourly, on the hour and departs from the restaurant hourly, on the half hour.
Good sportsmanship and the love of the game is a core value at St John’s College, and the tournament offers the ideal opportunity for our young sportsmen to develop and foster relationships within a competitive environment.
We look forward to seeing you for tip-off at the courts!
