Betway, a leading international online betting and gaming brand, has renovated and launched another basketball facility at the Leaders Club Grounds in Dar es Salaam. The launch that took place on Saturday, 26 March 2022, is the continuation of the Super Group-owned brand’s sports facilities renovation pilot project that aims at renovating five basketball facilities in Dar es Salaam.
Through the project, Betway renovates basketball facilities in strategic public sports and recreational centres with a view of adding value to the basketball sport in the country. To make sure the renovated facilities are properly maintained for sustainable use, Betway has collaborated with the Tanzania Basketball Federation (TBF), the government body responsible for the administration of basketball in the country. TBF plays a significant role in making sure the facilities are meaningfully utilised for basketball competitions and other related sports activities.
A variety of sports and networking activities that brought together over 250 individuals and stakeholders from the basketball sport industry accompanied the inaugural events. The main event of the bonanza was a basketball match between two female teams, Dar Queens and Dar Divas, for a TSh 500,000 reward. Betway prioritised women as part of the annual 8 March celebration of Women’s Day.
Speaking to the attendees of the launch event, Betway Tanzania’s Marketing Manager, Calvin Mhina, highlighted key improvements covered by Betway.
“We took the responsibility to upgrade this (Leaders Club) court looking at the value it will add to the game since it is one of the most famous sports and recreational centers in Dar es Salaam. At Betway, we believe in community development as part of our core responsibilities and we will keep supporting the sports community in all aspects of sports development,” said Mhina.
Mwenze Kabinda, the TBF’s secretary-general, commended the move by Betway as he admitted that the upgrade of the court will add great value to the game.
“For us (TBF) who are responsible for the development of the sport, it excites us to see stakeholders such as Betway invest in improving infrastructures which are key to guaranteeing the development of any sport. We are thankful for the project and this brings a challenge to us as a responsible authority to come up with more tournaments to make sure the courts are in use,” commented Mwenze.
Basketballers, fans, and stakeholders who took part in the bonanza had a great time watching the game and taking part in the other amusing events. Players shared their delight about the court modifications they saw and experienced during the launch game.
