New Nationwide Men's Basketball League Promises to Keep Athletes Playing Sports in Denver

ALTOONA, IA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 1, 2005 -- Keep Playing Sports, the leader in competitive sports leagues (www.keepplayingsports.com), today announced the official Denver schedule for the 2005 Men's Basketball League. Designed to give top-notch basketball players the chance to scratch that competitive itch once again, KPS's goal is to give back to athletes the feeling of highly competitive basketball from their former college or high school playing days. Keep Playing Sports provides non-professional, competitive athletes with the means necessary to play and compete against other players in different locations, venues and cities.

The inaugural season kicks off September 11, 2005 in eight regions across the country, including Dallas/Ft. Worth, Seattle, San Jose, San Diego, Sacramento, Denver, Atlanta, and Des Moines. Winners in each region will be awarded airfare and hotel accommodations to Las Vegas to compete in the national championship playoffs December 16-18, 2005 for a grand prize of $4000. Nearly $30,000 in total awards, trophies, travel and cash prizes will be awarded.

Games in Denver will be played at Colorado Athletic Club, Aurora and will be officiated by certified referees. Separating itself from local recreation leagues will be the addition of official stat keepers. Full, detailed statistics will be viewable to your fans at www.keepplayingsports.com giving them the ability to track a player or team's season. You'll never know who's watching, as stats will also be accessible to overseas and professional league scouts.
