National Key High School “U17” Boys’ Basketball Elite Tournament Opens in Yangxin, Shandong

In response to the national call to actively build a powerful sports nation, vigorously promote the development of youth sports, and promote the prosperity of the sports industry in the whole city, the 2024 National Key High School “U17” Boys’ Basketball Elite Tournament, hosted by Binzhou Sports Bureau, National Key School Basketball Alliance, and Yangxin County, recently kicked off in Yangxin County.

“U17” refers to the competition for basketball players under the age of 17. The “U17” Boys’ Basketball Elite Tournament has invited 14 teams from the National Key School Basketball Alliance and national key high schools to gather in Yangxin for a week-long intense competition. The champion, runner-up, and third-place teams will be determined on June 11.

In recent years, the Yangxin County Committee and County Government have attached great importance to sports work, and various sectors of society have provided strong support. The investment in the construction of public sports facilities in the entire county has continued to increase, and sports events at the county, township, and village levels have flourished, presenting a thriving trend in the fitness industry. Especially last year, despite the relative financial difficulties, more than 30 million yuan was invested to transform and upgrade four old urban parks, build 11 pocket sports parks, and purchase and distribute 1,764 pieces of sports and fitness equipment. A total of 1,418 sports events at the county, township, and village levels were held, earning the title of “Advanced Unit of the 13th Shandong Provincial National Fitness Games” awarded by the Shandong Provincial Sports Bureau. This has laid a solid foundation for the construction of a higher-level public service system for national fitness, the promotion of high-quality development of the sports industry, and the establishment of a solid foundation.

The hosting of this event provides basketball enthusiasts with an opportunity to experience high-level games up close, further inspiring the enthusiasm of young people for basketball, allowing more people to feel the charm of basketball and enjoy the joy of sports, and adding color to the construction of a high-quality Binzhou.
