Basketball heroes in Mijas


MIJAS HAS hosted the Women’s Gold Basketball League’s semi-finals in the Las Lagunas sports complex.

Nuria Rodriguez, Councillor for Sports, said fans had come from all over to watch the event and support the Mijas Basketball Club, calling on “support for the players.”

The local team reached the semi-final stage as hosts and faced teams CB Marbella and ACD Gamarra. The day was enlivened with competitions, gifts and the team’s mascot, Buba, filling the pavilion with sports fans.

In other basketball news, Mijas has launched this year’s Camp Buba, teaching the town’s children how to play the sport. Ms Rodriguez explained the event would allow, “children to continue to improve their technique in the summer season when sports activities are reduced. Our intention is that they continue to practice the sport.”
