PHILIPSBURG:--- The Together We Can Foundation is once again hosting its annual Battle of the Fittest Basketball Tournament that caters to basketball lovers around the region and the world. We envisage that we will foster a strong united community through the camaraderie of sportsmanship.
Last year’s tournament, which was won by the French St. Martin team, was held over the weekend of July 16th to 19th and was labeled a great success. This year however, the tournament will be held for one week, from July 18th up to and including July 24th.
This year the teams will be competing for the Basketball Bragging Rights Title in a week of fun and action. Others prizes include our MVP Award, and a Grand Prize of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) for the winning team.
The Opening Ceremony on July 18th will include the drawing of brackets, while the title games will start on July 18th and will continue for the rest of the week. The final playoffs and closing ceremony will follow on July 24th at the L.B. Scott Sports Auditorium in Philipsburg.
Last year's champions, are expected to return this year to defend their title against more and fiercer competition.
The Together We Can Foundation and the organizing committee of BOTF, express their sincerest thanks to last year’s sponsors, the volunteers and basket ball fans for supporting the 2015 Battle of the Fittest Basket Ball tournament event.
We look forward to your support again this year and humbly request the assistance of other businesses to make this year's event another success.
