THE Brunei Basketball Association (BBA) announced that they will be organising the annual Sultan's Cup basketball competition during a committee meeting at the BBA court in Batu Bersurat last night.

It is open to all ballers holding a valid Brunei identity card.
Interested parties can obtain their entry forms from the BBA court.
Completed registration forms with entry fees of $300 for the Men's category and $200 for the Women's category are to be handed in to the organisers on or before the closing date on July 25.

The organising committee is expecting participation from some 20 teams in the Men's category, in addition to four for the Women's category.
The last open tournament organised by the BBA was the BBA Open Challenge Trophy, held in March where Plaza Sutera Biru emerged as the champions after erasing a 25-point deficit to defeat the Ilonggo Stingers 83-77 in the final.
Meanwhile, the Borneo City Cup was also among the agenda for discussion last night.
The Sultanate is set to host the tournament from August 13-15 with the venue yet to be confirmed.
There will be three categories contested for the cup Men's Open, Men's Veteran (40 years old and above) and Women's Open categories.
The games will be played over the course of three days.
A total of four teams including Brunei with Kota Kinabalu, Miri and Labuan being the others, have confirmed their participation in all three categories for the annual competition.
