It seems like Mumbaikars can't get enough of their hoops, can they? Within a space of a few months, the Mumbai courts have already hosted the Ramu Memorial Basketball Tournament and the Mahindra-NBA Challenge and next month, the Mastan Basketball League is set to be launched, too.
And here's another "basketball carnival" attracting Mumbai hoop-heads: The Andheri Invitational Tournament tipped off on Tuesday April 20th at the Andheri YMCA court. Organized by Andheri YMCA and co-sponsored by ABEC India, the tournament will conclude on May 2nd.
The competition will be held for the following sub-groups:

- Under 18 (Boys)

Teams have been considered for invitation following their performance in the Bandra/Ghatkopar tournaments. A total of Rs. 1 lakh prize money is on offer.
One of the highlights of the tournament will be the 'Master's Match', held on the 1st of May: it will be a special exhibition game featuring former International and National players as well as basketball loving celebrities.
