THE Super three’s competition, a shorter version of basketball challenge, attracted 16 teams to battle at the Ela Beach basketball courts on Sunday, in what was another successful showdown.
After a flying start last Sunday, Rapid Finance Tsunami were again at their best, winning the challenge for the second week in a row.
They collected mobile phones donated by bemobile company while the runners-up, PNG Motors, settled for bemobile caps and third prize went to Late Bus, who took home with them bemobile bags and Telikom merchandise – access polo shirts, water bottles and caps.
The challenge is aimed at raising money to fund the development of basketball in PNG.
Competition organiser Lawrence Lahari said all proceeds from Super Three series would help fund the PNG men’s development team’s participation in Cairns next month.
The event, which started in 2007, would help develop players and, also build great relationship with the Cairns Basketball Association.
Lahari said the door was still open for other competitors  to register their team to participate.
The registration fee is K50.
The last round of matches for this year will be held on Sunday at the Ela Beach basketball courts.
