Today Basketball NSW have released the 2022 John Martin Country Tournament Draw set to be played over the June long weekend.

The John Martin Country Tournament will feature over 501 games, 187 teams across seven venues across regional NSW.

The Country Tournament was renamed in 2016 after NSW Basketball Hall of Fame member John Martin who has made a significant contribution to basketball as a referee, referee coach and as an administrator. His contributions to the sport have seen him previously honoured with Life Membership to Shoalhaven Basketball, NSW Basketball and Basketball Australia. His expertise in officiating has seen him appointed to the role of Technical Commissioner for the 1997 World Championships for Under 22 Men, 1998 World Basketball Championships for Women and the 1998 World Wheelchair Championships. 

Each age group and division also celebrates the contributions of various influential members of our country basketball community with the full list HERE.
