Basketball, BISP Challenge cup

Over the weekend the British International School Phuket hosted the fourth annual Challenge Cup basketball tournament. This year the competition featured teams from seven schools and one university from Phuket.

The BISP senior boys’ team made considerable progress, winning all three of their pool games and qualifying for the semi-finals – a solid improvement on last year. After a slow start in the semi-final they closed the gap, but could not quite match the fast pace of Phuket Wittayalai.

The girls’ two close losses versus Satree Phuket and Songkhla University saw them miss a place in Saturdays final. Both teams are now looking ahead to Senior Games this weekend in Pattaya.

Congratulations to the tournament winners in both Boys and Girls: Satree Phuket.
