DUNKS and high flying aerials were the order of the day at Griffith’s first 4Slam basketball tournament on Saturday.
It may have been brief, but Griffith still had a taste of a different breed of basketball.
The city hosted a small 4Slam basketball tournament with the talented athletes quickly adapting to the different rules aimed at making the sport even more entertaining.
Only few teams were involved in the competition, but the small number didn’t detract from the performances.
The final was a nail biter with a buzzer beater needed to split the teams, who each won one game.
Event organiser and 4Slam creator Alphonse Hammond was still pleased with how the day went despite the low numbers.
“It was really good, it wasn’t huge. We had a couple of teams, played three games with those teams and had some shooting competitions and gave away prizes which made it a good day,” Hammond said.
“I was still happy with the day even though we didn’t have huge numbers, everybody had fun.”
A larger tournament is scheduled for February with eight teams already expressing an interest to become involved.
