Byron Bay Basketball hosted its seventh annual senior carnival over the past two weekends.
All up, 25 teams from Queensland and NSW competed in A and B-grade men’s and women’s events.
‘There were more than 250 competitors as well as friends and family travelling from Brisbane, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and with many choosing to stay, that’s a great boost to accommodation providers and other businesses,’ carnival coordinator Paula Daniels said.
Byron Bay’s Level 47 took out the B-grade mens for the second year running, defeating Griffith Uni’s Greendoggs, with local Nash Campbell awarded MVP.
In the women’s B-grade competition, Griffith Uni Greendoggs edged out fellow Griffith Uni team, Nationals, to take home the prizemoney.
In the A-grade women’s, Post-Tels came out on top against Mixed Cruisers.
The A-grade men’s final was tight with only a few points separating first timers, Behoys, against carnival veterans the Rusty Trombones, who hung on to take out the first prize, with Thomas Ammar awarded MVP.
