It is estimated that more than two thirds of families in Swaziland, Africa live in poverty.  As a result, many parents struggle to pay school fees and other educational costs. Challenged by this reality, Matt and Amanda Opalko of Winnipeg organized a fundraising 16-team basketball tournament called Hoops for Swaziland on June 4th and 5th.  The tournament was a great success, raising over $6,500 dollars and allowing 75 children to attend school this fall!  They would like to give a big
thank you to the referee’s and volunteers who generously donated their time. Matt and Amanda would like to make the tournament an annual event and thank the basketball community for their support.  For more information on the event...
