Tralee Imperials and Kerry Hos­pice team up for an­other marathon event

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - CHRISTMAS IN TRALEE -

SATUR­DAY, De­cem­ber 15 is a date for the di­ary as Tralee Imperials hosts an­other ex­cit­ing bas­ket­ball marathon in aid of Kerry Hos­pice and the club. If you hap­pen to have a sweet tooth, as well as a love for bas­ket­ball, then you’re in for a dou­ble treat. On the day the club’s an­nual cake sale will be held, while don­ning Santa hats will add some fes­tive flair to the on court ac­tion.

Bas­ket­ball is on the crest of a wave right now in Tralee as the game goes from strength to strength. Tralee Imperials are an im­por­tant part of this story be­ing one of Tralee’s top clubs with vi­brant un­der­age and se­nior struc­tures in place. The club will wel­come pri­mary school chil­dren from St. Bren­dan’s NS Blen­nerville and Scoil Eoin Bal­loon­agh, who took part in the re­cent Jr. NBA pro­gramme.

Last year’s marathon was a huge suc­cess and it’s all down to a com­bi­na­tion of skill and fun. It’s a great end of year jam for Imperials and it all takes place at Mounthawk Gym. The ac­tion starts at 8:30am and runs un­til 6:30pm.
