The Island Basketball League [IBL] has announced the launch of its 2016-17 season which commences tonight, Monday, October 10th. Games are being held at the CedarBridge Academy gymnasium starting at 7:00pm with surprise giveaways during game days throughout the season.

“We’re all about bringing together the excitement of team sport and the quality time many families on the island are looking for,” Kenny Simmons CIBL Commissioner said.

“Without the unwavering support of our title sponsor, fans and family, the opportunity for the basketball community to showcase and develop their skills sets in a semi-professional arena would not be possible” Lamumba Tucker, Vice President of the Bermuda Basketball Association [BBA] said.
