Lebanese Basketball Federation Hot
During the war the basketball never stopped and there was always tournaments organized between the clubs of each section in the country and the players did not stop from doing their best hobby. After the war in 1993 the 1st championship was organized under the era of Tony Khoury who stood in the Federation for so many years and from that time the media started to had a bigger interest in this game until late 1996 when a new Federation was born with Antoin Chartier as a president , at that time the LBC interfered and sponsored the game so this date was the big launching of the Lebanese Basketball.
The First time the Basketball in Lebanon was ever known, was in the mid twenties in the American University of Beirut. Mr. Gabi Arbaji was the first to prepare a basketball playground in Tabaris area, where the early competitions (college competitions) were held there.
