The HASC game has over the years become an event not to be missed, as it showcases some of the best young talent that the UK has to offer. The event consists of two U-19 games with the second ever women’s game at 12:30pm followed by the men’s game at 5:00pm. There will also be a Three Point Shooting Contest as well as a Dunk contest prior to the men’s game. With there still being a lot of uncertainty due to COVID-19, there are restrictions that have been put in place for the event at Battersea Sports Centre.
The event will unfortunately be taking place without the presence of fans, but will be streamed live online for all to see across Hoopsfix's social media platforms.
“For months, I convinced myself we would have to cancel again, so to be this close to pulling it off is great,” said Sam Neter, owner of Hoopsfix.
“With that said, it is gutting not having fans this year because that’s what makes the event so special, but we just couldn’t go two years without running the Classic.
“A huge shoutout to all of our incredible partners – we’re extremely grateful for their support and looking forward to another great day despite the conditions.”
The roster for the game will be revealed in the coming days.
