The National Basketball Association (NBA) has launched the league’s first Dribble-a-thon in India, a basketball challenge event featuring participants ages six and above dribbling a basketball across a one kilometer course.
The event will tip off Saturday, February 29 at Sports Complex, Sector 7, Chandigarh, and will travel to multiple cities across India over the next few months, including Jaipur and Ghaziabad. The event is free to participate in and registration is now open at http://www.nbadribbleathon.com.
NBA India Managing Director Rajesh Sethi said: “We launched Dribble-a-thon to promote basketball participation in a fun and unique way. With the increasing popularity of basketball and the NBA across India, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to engage with our fans.”
In addition to the on-court challenge, 10 lucky participants in each city will be randomly selected to win a smartphone. Dribble-a-thon will also offer exciting fan experiences including basketball arcade games, NBA 2K competitions, and more.
