Basketball action at Kanteerava stadium Bengaluru

The Karnataka State Basketball Association will be conducting State Youth Basketball championship for Boys & Girls at Sri Kanteerava Stadium Basketball Courts, Bangalore from 11th May 2015.

In this championship, 52 boys teams & 28 Girls teams will be participating from all over the state. Every state is mandated to conduct a youth basketball championship for U-16 players every year, in the run up to the annually held National Youth Basketball Championship. Southern neighbour Kerala has already concluded its championship, while in Maharashtra, Pune just conducted a district level version.

About Kanteerava Courts

The outdoor courts next to the Kanteerava Stadium play host to almost all the major basketball state level events in Karnataka. Apart from the upcoming youth championship, the venue also hosts the State A, B and C Division champions. The Kanteerava courts also functions as the training ground for the Vijaya Bank Club team, the top senior side in the state that organises the Mulki Sunder Ram Shetty All India Club Tournament in the city.

A few months ago, the cement courts were finally refurbished, but complaints persist that the new synthetic surface is still too slippery especially during the rains that are a common occurrence in Bengaluru. The indoor stadium is rarely used for basketball events and instead plays host to exhibitions and trade fairs, further damaging the surface. [Editor’s note: From the reliable source in the comment section below, it appears that currently the indoor wooden flooring is itself absent, and teraflex mats need to be laid as a temporary measure until the new wooden surface is laid.]
