The Tanzania Basketball Federation (TBF) has disclosed that the year 2014 has been successful as it has managed to conduct all tournaments in its calendar despite various obstacles. TBF Secretary General Saleh Zonga told the 'Daily News' that after carrying out an evaluation of how the federation has performed this year, they have realised that they have done extremely well after conducting all major tournaments. He said they are happy they have not cancelled any competition envisaged in their calendar despite facing financial constrains and lack of sponsorship. "We have conducted all major tournaments as per our calendar. They include the National Basketball Championship (Taifa Cup), Union League, Nyerere Cup and Kilimanjaro Cup. This is a big achievement," Zonga said. He said during the evaluation they also dwelt on the challenges that arose when staging various competitions. The focus was on how to end the sponsorship problem, which has been the major obstacle in implementing the federation's calendar to the letter.
"Most of our tournaments were conducted without having sponsors and this was the major problem we faced this year but, fortunately, we managed to carry on by requesting the regions or clubs to share the costs with the federation and grateful we were successful," said the TBF secretary. According to Zonga, TBF is looking forward to alleviating the problem of lack of sponsorship in the New Year so as to enable the sport to retain its popularity among the youth and develop it countrywide. He said the TBF plans to organise a grand basketball bash to bid farewell the year 2014 and welcome the New Year 2015, if they get sponsorship. Meanwhile, Zonga has been appointed Zone V Commission of Wheelchair Basketball president effective September this year. Zone V basketball member- countries are Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somalia, Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
