Special Olympics basketball set for Derry, Londonderry
More than 800 Special Olympics athletes fully able partners are expected to participate in this weekend's games, which will take place at venues in both Derry and Londonderry.
"Basketball continues to be one of our most popular athletic offerings and continues to grow," Gretyl Macalaster, communications manager for Special Olympics NH, said in a release.
Among the weekend's highlights is a competition between the team that's representing New Hampshire in the 2014 USA Games in New Jersey this summer and three other teams in their division. The game is set for Saturday at 9 a.m. at Pinkerton's Hackler Gym.
Special Olympics New Hampshire is still seeking volunteers to assist with timing, scorekeeping and lunch serving at the events this weekend. For more information on volunteer opportunities, contact Miranda Morse at 624-1250, ext. 24, or email@example.com.
