Byron Basketball held their 3on3 Comp last Sunday at the Cavanbah Centre, and what an amazing success it was. 

Credit to the volunteers who gave up their Sunday and the large number of basketball fanatics who travelled down from north of the border. 

Twenty-one teams from the Gold Coast and the Byron area battled it out over four age groups from U/12s to U/18s. 

Winners

U/12 girls Pacific Pines Panthers (Gold Coast), U/12 boys Pythons (Byron), U/14 boys Astrodogs (Gold Coast), U/16 boys Peanut Butter Fam (Gold Coast), U/18 boys Llamas in Pyjamas (Byron Bay).

A big thankyou to all sponsors.
