ch1 June 6th, 2010, the Guru Gobind Singh Children’s Foundation held their sixth annual 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament at Turner Fenton Secondary School in Brampton. Teams competed in three divisions of 15-17, 18-20, and 21+ years of age. The event attracted over 90 participants for the charity tournament. The three divisions were very competitive and made for an entertaining day of basketball for everyone. In our first division of 15-17, the final came down to Brampton Ballers and No Names. The final went to the finish as Brampton Ballers were able score in the final seconds to send the game to sudden death overtime. The overtime period was very defensive but the Brampton Ballers prevailed claiming the division title. In our second division of 18-20, an energetic team named Martingrove featuring Sandalwood came away with the division crown. Their ability to dominate their division allowed them the opportunity to participate in our third division of 21+. The team fared well against the rest of the competition and made it to the finals against Team Khalsa. The Martingrove featuring Sandalwood team had the opportunity to take the double, two division titles. Everyone in the gym was excited to watch the finals, allowing the two teams to take centre stage. Both teams showcased their skills and talents in back and forth affair. In the end, Team Khalsa’s experience took over the younger team of Martingrove featuring Sandalwood. Team Khalsa were able to take the championship in the 21+ division. The GGSCF would like to thank the volunteers who helped make this event possible and all of the participants who took part in our sixth annual 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament.
