7th National Deaf Basketball Game held in Kyoto in March



The 7th National Deaf Basketball Game was held in the gym in Kyoto City on March 21-22, 2009, sponsored by the Japan Deaf Basketball Society, a nonprofit organization.

Twenty teams in total, 12 boy teams and 8 girl teams from Hokkaido, a northern island of Japan, to Fukuoka, a southern part of the nation, participated and about 200 players competed the league game on March 21.

The chief umpire used yellow gloves that stood out to the Deaf players, and the sideline men shook the flag so that the Deaf players could notice easily.

The shout of joy went up to an intense dribble and the shot during the game. There was a tournament on March 22 to determine the winner for the boy team and girl team each.
