RAYON SPORTS Association management is planning to establish a basketball club which will feature in next year’s basketball league.
Theogene Ntampaka, the Chairperson of Rayon Sports Association confirmed the development on Friday last week, saying, “We found it necessary to have a basketball team named after Rayon Sports so as to keep up with our mission of promoting unity and togetherness of Rwandan people as well developing sports in the country,”
“Sport is an important tool to help us achieve the goal of togetherness. Basketball team alongside the football and volleyball clubs is the right channels through which our Rwandan values will be progressively unearthed,”
“We are about to set up a managing committee for Rayon Sports basketball club and secure its budget as to avoid future negative repercussions which are always caused by financial straits that hinder most clubs from flourishing,” he added
Rayon Sports basketball club will be the twelfth club in the top flight basketball league of which Espoir BBC is the defending champion.
Note that Rayon Sport football club will be the oldest club among the three as its existence stems back in 1968 while the Rayon Sports volleyball club is playing their maiden championship where it is temporarily ranked 4th out of thirteen clubs.
