0

The country’s biggest 3×3 basketball tournament, the Rawle Toney Classic, will take place on March 18 – 19 at the Burnham Basketball tournament.

According to organizer Rawle Toney, first held in 2019, the 16-team tournament this time around will be a club competition, with teams coming from Linden, Bartica, Berbice and Georgetown.

Toney added that several teams from the Caribbean have signalled their interest in participating, which he said will help to boost the competitiveness of the tournament.

“The idea is to strengthen club basketball, and since there are now two formats of the game, it is only fitting that clubs be given a chance to compete. It’s about also giving clubs some revenue,” Toney said.

Last year, the team comprising Harold Adams, Stanton Rose and Shelroy Thomas took home the championship trophy, championship ring and other prizes. Thomas was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

Additionally, Adams, Rose and Thomas represented Guyana at the Islamic Games in Istanbul, Turkey and the FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup in Miami, Florida.

Toney said other details regarding the tournament will be made available at the launching on February 1.

Rawle Toney 3×3 Classic serves to give 3X3 basketball a platform in Guyana that’s unmatched by the conventional 5-v-5 format.

Over the years, the tournament enjoyed support from GoMoseley Media, The Muse Bar, Brother’s Security, Mackeson, Hennessy, MVP Sports, Trophy Stall, Hits and Jams Entertainment, E-Net, Jacob’s Jewellery, FireSide Grill, Team Mohamed’s, Star Party Rentals, Shi-Oil, Slingerz Entertainment, Government of Guyana and other notable entities.
