NBA star, David West to lead 1-day basketball clinic In Accra, August 15

NBA star David West will engage young kids in a skills camp to be hosted at the University of Ghana-Legon, on Tuesday August 15.

David will be joined by one of his longtime students of the game T.J Warren of the Phoenix Suns as well as former Houston Rockets power forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu to help with the one-day programme.

The clinic will bring together 10-18-year-olds from all over Ghana for a day of instruction, innovation and interaction with some of NBA’s superstars.

Beyond basketball, the clinic would also showcase innovative technologies with a focus on renewable energy solutions, clean water technology, electric vehicles, 3-d printing systems as well as health and wellness programs.
