SEVEN clubs have registered to be part of the Suva Basketball Association League this season.

SBA president Leonard Whippy confirmed this yesterday.

He said new clubs had shown interest to join the SBA league.

"The response to participate in the Suva League has been positive," he said.

"So far seven teams have confirmed their participation with one new team entering the competition.

"We expect a few more teams to confirm their participation."

The association expects the league to start early next month, and Whippy said the competition would run for more than two months.

"We plan to start competition in early February which will run for 10 weeks."

Whippy added the B-Grade competition would also be held.

"We plan to continue the B-Grade competition as most of our athletes in this grade are high school students.

"This competition will also help those who are aiming to represent Fiji in the U19 Grade later this year in the Oceania championships."
