The Gough Foundation plans to rehabilitate the Manneh Sillah Basketball Courts in Banjul. The foundation has secured modern basketball posts for the courts, plans to rehabilitate the lighting system, rehabilitate the playing surface, rehabilitate dressing rooms/toilets and put up a modern scoreboard. This is being done in collaboration with the mayor of Banjul and the Gambia basketball association. This is in our drive to revitalise basketball in the Banjul area.
In a similar vein, the foundation with establish a basketball/volleyball court at the father gough sports complex in manjai kunda similar to what would be at the Manneh Sillah courts in Banjul. This we hope would give children within the manjai/Kotu/Bakoteh/Kololi area an opportunity to develop their basketball skills and establish a league within these areas.
The gough foundation solicit your support and donations towards this venture. The project should be completed by end 2009.
