BPS Invitational Basketball Tournament

Primary Basketballers Raise Their Game for our very own BPS Invitational Basketball Tournament

Our very own U’11 Invitational Basketball Tournament on Friday 1st October brought the curtain down on what was a very busy sporting week for Key Stage 2 students. We were delighted to welcome boys’ teams from Shrewsbury x 2, Concordian, Bangkok Prep and TCIS and were able to field a very pleasing 5 Patana Teams from our ECA to make a 2 pool, 5 team tournament with cross over finals. Shrewsbury joined us for the girls’ and we fielded 4 Patana Teams from both our ECA and from Year 5s identified from our Basketball unit. The 5 girls’ teams then played each other in a round robin format with a final between the top two teams after the group stage. The level of basketball was good and the boys in particular showed much improvement from last weeks’ visit to Shrewsbury.

The group stages were hotly contested in the boys’ events especially as many lessons were learned about the importance of good communication in defense as well as the power of the layup and art of the towering rebound. Patana Tigers and Patana Black went through unbeaten to meet in the 1st place final with the Black Team just pipping it 10-8. Bangkok Prep and Shrewsbury Storm battled it out for 3rd and 4th while our Patana Oranges reigned supreme to win the 3rd v 3rd place final with Sebie Bailey 6B leading the scoring. Patana Blue tied their 4th v 4th place final while the Patana Whites saved the best for last, beating Shrewsbury White in their final.

In the Girls Group some loose umpiring at times caused the girls some confusion but all of the teams certainly benefited from the experience and improved as the afternoon went on. Points were sometimes hard to come by as the girls and Coaches came up with ways to get past Shrewsbury’s zone defense but lessons were certainly learned should other teams stray from the more open man on man system that we encourage for Primary children. Several draws between our own teams left our surprise package Patana Oranges in the Final versus Shrewsbury which they narrowly lost by 1 basket. So congratulations to the Shrewsbury girls but also to all of our teams who certainly enjoyed their afternoon on court.

A huge thank you to all of our Coaches who gave up their Friday afternoon to Coach including myself, Mr Chris, Miss Fiona, Khun Patcharee, Coach Jo, Mr Brad and Mr Amuchou. Thank you and well played to all of the visiting schools and our own children who played with great spirit and enthusiasm and finally to all of the parents who came to support their children and all of our teams.

Next up is BISAC U’11 Basketball which will be held this year at ISB on Saturday 6th November. Go for it Patana!
