Oct 14, 2017
The strength of women’s basketball in Jordan was underlined by a podium performance from Fuhais at the Arab Clubs Basketball Championship taking place in Lebanon, Beirut.
Fuhais Ladies won the third place play-off against Egypt's Olympiad 86-76, while Lebanon's Homenetmen took the title by beating Tunisia’s Safaqsi in the final.
Earlier in the group stage, Fuhais beat Hussein Wedadi from Algeria and Olympiad before losing to Homenetmen to go through to the semi-finals as runners-up.
“It's the biggest event for women’s Basketball in the region so this result will give us the encouragement to go on and develop our game further here in Jordan,” said the team’s coach, Feisal Al Nsoor.
Next up will be the West Asian Championships in February.
