AFTER its slam dunk success the first time around, local youth and volunteers will be glad to hear Midnight Basketball Grafton is back.
"Everyone had a blast last time around," said Midnight Basketball Grafton committee chair and Clarence Valley Council Deputy Mayor Craig Howe.
"We have had both players and volunteers alike asking when it will be kicking off again, which is a great sign."
Midnight Basketball is a youth program operating successfully in different locations across Australia, giving young people something fun, safe and healthy to do on a Friday night.
The structured nights are designed to offer nutritional food for dinner, educational workshops, tournament basketball and then a lift home before midnight for those between the ages of 12 and 18.
The committee is looking for volunteers to lend a hand in the second instalment of the eight-week competition.
The first tip-off scheduled for 7.30pm on Friday at the Grafton Sports Centre in Powell St.
Final preparations are being made for what is sure to be another stellar eight-week program of fun, learning and close contests.
More information and a simple online player and volunteer registrations are available at midnightbasketball.org.au/grafton.
