IHBB will launch its African division for the 2015-2016 or 2016-2017 school year. The launch date will depend on staff availability to undertake an outreach trip to Africa and whether we are approached by schools willing to host. We anticipate beginning with tournaments in South Africa. In future years, we anticipate expanding to Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, and Botswana, with other countries to follow as conditions permit. Teachers and students from anywhere in Africa who are potentially interested in competing should contact IHBB staff through the methods listed under the “Contact Us” link. If we find interested teachers, students, and school administrators, this could greatly help us begin our African tournaments sooner than anticipated.
