Singapore, 20 March 2022 - The stage has been set at Our Tampines Hub. Following six weeks of intense basketball competition, 32 teams from across five zones make their way to the East today, with four of them staking a claim to become the first ever champions of the ActiveSG Cup.

Proform Gold and Team Seafood have blazed a trail to the grand final of the tournament, having brushed aside the competition in their respective Central and East Zones en route to the showpiece event.
Cool as ice is Seafood's Jayson Tan. His laid back demeanour makes him hard to predict for when he springs into life on court. PHOTO: KIN PRODUCTIONS
Proform Gold will lay siege on Team Seafood led by the presence of the towering Max who has proven to be more than a handful for most of Proform Gold's opponents. He will be supported by Zach's sharp shooting and nifty footwork and quick movement of Rajata Hakim, who really shone in the Super League on Saturday.

But they will do well not to underestimate Team Seafood's boys-next-door appearances, this is a team of skilled ballers who have stormed to victories of huge margins week in and week out, and have had arguably demonstrated the best teamwork of the lot.

Yung Juen and Jayson Tan have led the line by example, while Shayan Levi's incredible precision shooting from near and far makes him a huge threat from any area of the court. Joachim Teoh will be the foil on which the team pivots and orchestrates the play, a real leader by example.

Girls Looking to Prove a Point
If you are expecting the Girls' competition to be anywhere less fiery, you will be in for a rude shock. Not just technically strong, the girls do not shun away from physical challenges as well, and have thrown their bodies on the line.
While JEDZ and Friends 1 have worked hard to stake a claim in today's final, their route to winning their respective groups was far from easy, having to fend off the threats of tough opponents in the form of SG Basketball and SBA Girls (in white).

SGBasketball, who hail from the West Zone have to settle for the 3rd and 4th playoff after finishing behind JEDZ in their group, but with the likes of Lim En Tong and Shaniah Lacsado are more than capable of holding their own, while SBA Basketball will be looking to the likes of Mayuri and Kayla in their quest to finish third in the U19 Super League.
