As part of its activities for the Holy month of Ramadan, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) was the platinum sponsor of the 2019 Kuwait Youth Basketball Tournament, which was organized specifically to increase sport activity during the Holy month of Ramadan. The tournament was held from 19 - 30 June 2019 at Gulf University for Science & Technology (GUST).
The tournament was organized in response to the poor activity levels of youth and the unhealthy lifestyle followed by many during the Holy month. It was also based on recent alarming studies that indicate that 42.8% of Kuwait’s population are obese.
The tournament was open to male and female participants from ages 15 – 21 years, and was addressed to all private schools and universities in Kuwait. A total of 16 teams competed for the winning trophies
The winning male team was Mayar who took 73 points in the final. Al Fataf ladies team won by 43 points.
ABK’s sponsorship is one of a series of activities the Bank took on during the Holy month
