YORKSHIRE Old Boys have entered two teams into the 2018 GB Masters Classic Basketball Tournament in Manchester, which takes place over the weekend of June 9 and 10.

Yorkshire Old Boys is a team made up of players from all over Yorkshire. They do not play together as a team in a league but come together for Classic Basketball Tournaments.

They have players from as far away as Easingwold, Hull, Leeds, Bradford and Keighley.

The GB Masters Tournament has grown over the years to become an international competition with teams from U.S.A., France, Holland, Sweden and other countries.

It has categories for men and women in various age ranges. The organisers also provide social functions for players, such as parties and dinners.
