NATION’S ELITE FREE AGENT PLAYERS TO COMPETE IN FRONT OF NBA, WNBA & FIBA SCOUTS
POTTSTOWN, PA, April 27, 2016 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — In the midst of “Nova Nation” frenzy, former Villanova Basketball Star Howard Brown (1995-1999) is returning to his hometown of Pottstown, PA with his full service player management, marketing and consulting International Ball Players United, LLP (iBall United) for the Second Annual iBall Pro Combine.
This innovative two-day event, which will be held June 25 and 26 from 9 AM-8 PM ET at Pottstown Senior High School (750 N. Washington St., Pottstown, PA 19464) will feature some of the nation’s top free agents as they compete in front of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts for the consideration of contracts at the U.S. and international professional basketball level.
iBall United is a full service player management, marketing and consulting firm focused on building professional careers. The company decided to create the iBall Pro Combine for athletes as an effective yet highly efficient tool for capturing the attention of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts in one controlled setting.
Howard, who was a successful player at Villanova and was even one of just a few players to break the 1,000 point mark, faced an uncertain future after graduation. That’s when he pursued a career overseas and became one of the most valuable players internationally. After 13 years playing abroad and winning two championships, two scoring titles and remains one the top 10 scorers in LEB Gold history, he decided to retire and start iBall United.
“It’s an honor and privilege to work with the young men and women who have entrusted us with the opportunity to launch, catapult, and sustain the path to growth in their careers,” said Brown. “I know what it’s like to be confident in your talent but need someone to give you a chance to show what you can do and prove yourself to the key decision-makers that can potentially offer you a contract.”
The iBall United Pro Combine
From action-packed tournament-style games and world-class drills, to intensive speed and athletic tests, iBall Pro Combine demonstrates what it takes to play at the professional level. The event is open to both male and female players. However they must be officially “invited” to attend after filling out an application online at www.iballunited.net and meeting the necessary requirements. Data for all registered players is shared internationally before, during, and after iBall Pro Combine to inform scouts on key metrics associated with professional evaluation.
▪ Reading Plays And Decision-Making.
▪ Levels of Contribution to A Winning Team.
To date, several local players have been confirmed, including: Deva’nar Workman – Duquense (Reading, PA) who was a WNBA Top 50 Draftboard Candidate, Ciara Andrews – St Joseph’s, and Devontae Andrews – Temple.
Additionally, marquee players including: Tyler Deihl – ABA Rookie of the Year Finalist, Marcus Cousin – Former NBA Player and Overseas Star and Alexander Morillo – International All Star are also confirmed.
The iBall United Pro Combine and The Community
In addition to the Pro Combine, Howard believes strongly in giving back to his hometown of Pottstown, which is why the event also has a strong focus on involving the community. The iBall Healthy Families Initiative was launched in 2015 to promote health, wellness, and unity of area families and the community.
At the 2015 iBall Pro Combine, 20 businesses participated to help IBall United award more than $1,000 to local charities and 100 youth participating in the Healthy Families Basketball Clinic (HFBC). And the 16 Healthy Families initiative is already expected to more than double the gifts to the community.
The 2016 iBall Pro combine will also feature the HFBC and a new group of Pro Prospects from across the country will volunteer once again in the drills with kids and their families.
New this year, iBall will host the Inaugural United Communities Knockout Tournament. The competition is scheduled for Saturday, June 11 at Spruce Street Park, Spruce and Gay Street
Pottstown, PA. Details are below:

Amador County, CA, May 08, 2015 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — A career spanning nearly 50 years isn’t over yet for Amador County veteran bodybuilder and one of the original Mr. Venice Beach competitors, Arthur Peacock. Peacock, who is turning 80 this year, takes the stage with 40-, 50-, and 60-year olds this Saturday, May 9 at the Contra Costa Bodybuilding Championship, to be held in the Chabot College Performing Arts Theatre.
“There is no doubt that this is a career turning point for me. It’s what I’ve been training for my entire life, but especially the last three years. I’ll have 60-seconds to prove myself—my physique and my poses—with competitors between 40 and 69. That’s potentially almost 40 years younger than me.”
Peacock chose to compete in three classes for a couple of reasons—no 70s bracket existed, and he has every intention of continuing his legacy to inspire others who want to follow their bodybuilding dreams.
“I want people to see me and say, ‘I can do that. Look at that guy up there at 80.’ I want to inspire to the end; I’ve done it all my life. I’ve had world champions come up to me and say, ‘I remember when you stopped and spoke to me as a teenager, and now, 20 years later, I’m the number one guy. Thank you.’”
It was in 1965, as an already athletic young man in his early 30s, an avid swimmer, surfer cyclist, and hiker, that Peacock went as a spectator with his friends to his first bodybuilding competition. “I knew I wanted to do that—that I could do that.” And that he did, taking home his first trophy in the 1968 Mr. Venice Beach competition, which gave rise to a half-century career with more than 50 major titles earned.
LONDON, England, February 16, 2015 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Where2Golf.com is celebrating its 10th anniversary as the ultimate online information source for the game of golf where golfers can ‘discover the best’ in golf travel and refer to its vast library of golf facts, figures and images.
Whilst first and foremost a comprehensive guide to the finest golf courses and the top golf destinations in the world, Where2Golf also houses an encyclopaedia of golf information covering international tournaments, both professional and amateur, a Who’s Who of golf, from the world’s best professionals to some of golf’s best course designers, as well as a golf dictionary that explains the game’s unique terminology.
Where2Golf began as a hobby back in 2002 for site founders, Nigel Butler and Suzanne Lenaerts, but it was three years later when they quit corporate life and committed themselves fulltime to expanding Where2Golf that it began to crystallize into the complete golf resource that it is today.
The professional development of the website started in 2005 with the couple visiting golf destinations and playing golf courses around the globe to ensure that their content was tried, tested and true and that the information they were providing was as accurate and objective as it could be.
“Nigel and I realised that if we were going to take on the huge task of growing Where2Golf into one of the world’s most complete golf guide we needed to devote 100% of our time to the project,” explains Suzanne. “ We gave up our jobs and began by seeking out and playing what most golfers would describe as the “best” golf courses on the planet. The Where2Golf resource you see today is the culmination of our combined experience of playing, assessing and covering over 4,500 golf courses over the last 10 years, from Europe to America, Australasia to Africa”.
As the content grew, so the website traffic grew.
Testament to the reputation the site has gained as a credible and reliable course reviewer, Where2Golf now generates an impressive 90,000 views per month and rising.
Though not exhaustive, this unique resource represents a wide and rich selection of courses that the general consensus of travelling golfers all over the world would want to play. To keep Where2Golf live, course reviews and new golfing destinations are added to and updated regularly. Turkey for example has recently been included in the golf destinations section.
The golf course reviews are based on Nigel’s and Suzanne’s assessment of three main aspects of a course: the quality of the design and layout, the conditioning and presentation and the attractiveness of the setting. The quality of the clubhouse, practice ground and associated facilities above and beyond the golf course are not factored into the ratings.
Another unique feature of the website is its high quality maps that feature all the courses Where2Golf covers. These maps are a powerful tool when planning a golf trip and mean that golfers can identify their preferred location boasting several great courses while basing themselves centrally. A quick click on each course details nearby recommended hotels whilst ‘Stay & Play’ courses are also indicated.
The encyclopaedia section of Where2Golf is as comprehensive as its golf course coverage.
In the Tournaments category, the results of all the top professional tournaments on the PGA, European, LPGA, LET, Asian and Seniors Tours are covered as well as the top amateur (both men and ladies) scene. Incredibly this coverage goes back as far as 1860.
The Who’s Who category not only includes the world’s top players but also celebrated golf course designers, golf journalists and club makers and many other golf “celebrities”. Biographies of each individual are listed as well as golfing achievements and their contribution to the world of golf.
Finally a dictionary on the site explains the meaning of the terminology used in the game and offers the first steps in trying to demystify what the sport is about and making it more understandable and approachable.
After 10 years in the making, Where2Golf really is the most comprehensive one-stop shop for travelling golfers.

This is especially timely as the growing popularity of youth baseball and other sports raises concerns over player injuries, including concussions. Grand Slam Safety’s popular safety fencing protects players while giving them a true stadium experience.
At a special two-day exhibition in the park on August 2 and August 3, the company invites visitors to learn more about its Little League-licensed products and new West Coast office. West Coast Sales Director Jeanette Chamberlain will be on hand to demonstrate the safety fencing and discuss Grand Slam’s solution to bringing home run excitement back into the game.
Increasing Safety and Fun
The need for a different kind of safety fence became clear to Grand Slam’s founders after a conversation with a local parent who worried about the safety of an unbounded outfield. They quickly realized that standard outfield fencing options could pose an even greater safety risk than no fence at all.
“As we began to research commercially available fencing options for outfield fences, we were unable to find any that we considered safe enough to bring well within the field of play,” says Grand Slam Safety CEO Bob Lyndaker. Existing fences were generally made from chain link or solid material and were located well beyond the edge of the outfield to reduce the likelihood of serious injury.
By creating a soft and flexible yet high-strength and durable configuration, Grand Slam Safety allows fencing to be placed at the actual bounds of the outfield without contributing to player injuries or impeding the flow of the game.
“The unique tensioned mesh design of the Grand Slam Safety Fence allows a player to run directly into the fence at full speed with minimal chance of injury,” says Chamberlain. “This innovation in outfield fencing allows a more exciting and complete game experience for players and fans without the normal injury risks.”
Grand Slam’s safety fence, which is made in the U.S., appeals to coaches, athletic directors and parents at all levels of youth baseball. “Not only does the fence add the look and feel of a stadium, but it also reduces the risk of injury to our athletes,” says Chris Villiere, softball coach at South Lewis Central School District in Turin, New York. “This is essential at a time in athletics when concussions have risen to the forefront of safety concerns in athletes of all ages.”
Simple Fix for Crowded, Multi-Sport Fields
The safety fence has a number of additional attributes that make it attractive for teams that operate outside of permanent, walled stadiums. The removable version of the fence can be installed or removed within an hour and is completely customizable to the size and shape of a given field, including fields that adhere to Little League dimensions. It is also easily outfitted with customized numbering to denote field distances. Grand Slam Safety provides customers with a full-scope “transport kit,” including turf inserts that conceal the fenceposts’ mounting holes, to assist with moving and storage.
To offset the cost of the fence’s installation and ensure that its clients enjoy a steady stream of revenue for its entire lifespan, Grand Slam Safety makes it easy to attach advertisements and banners at any point along its length. Thanks to a space-efficient design that requires minimal storage, the fence is ideal for municipal and school fields that host different sports at different times of the week or year.
More information about Grand Slam Safety and its line of sports safety products is available at http://www.grandslamsafety.com. CEO Bob Lyndaker welcomes media inquiries: 315-301-4039 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cruzeiro Safaris ventures into sports tourism in Kenya . An adventure taken is worthwhile it’s the only experience one can have at that particular time. All positions at the Carmel derby 2013 were taken by British nationals showing the interest getting out of the norm to venture into the unknown. All were in the amateurs’ category and positions 1to 3 too cash prizes home. There are many upcoming sports based events around the country. This has raised due to the constitutional boundary changes where instead of centralized governance they have move to devolutionalised governance. Every county government wants to shine and thus will embark on efforts to bring visitors and investors into their county. Kenya is known for its wide range of sports including racings, athletics, golf, rallying, javelin, swimming, lawn tennis, table tennis, football, volley ball and net ball. The fact that there is peace and stability in Kenya more and more opportunities will arise for tour operators to come up with exciting packages for locals and tourist. This will increase revenues and growth to an economy that is fast growing.
Mr. Munga the Director says “Sports tourism is fun but combining it with a safari package gives more value in time and money, so we encourage our customers not only to think of Mombasa and Maasai Mara but be ready to know their country better!”
Cruzeiro-safaris.com is established in Kenya, incorporated in 2004. Its core business is safari packages and day tours complemented by air travel. It has a well established wealth of experience in arranging memorable tours and safaris and has established a client base that provides us with repeat business year after year.

“I can’t believe I stumbled like that…but thankful health is back….”, are just some of the words that Dix tweeted after his off form 100m performance in Zurich this past weekend. Though he stumbled out of the blocks, Dix was still able to recapture enough form to stop the clock at a season’s best 10.07 into a slight headwind against six of the eight 100m finalists from Moscow.
He had not raced for almost two weeks prior to Zurich as he has been training and continuing rehab from the slight strain suffered in Des Moines at USA’s. He strategically ran low-key races since then in order to test his body and rehab properly, while slowly regaining his competitive edge.
“I had to take some time to completely heal and not rush myself back to the track to soon. I just had to be patient in order to come back ready to run again. I want to show the young people who follow the sport that to do it right, it takes a little time, and patience.”
It has been a long season for the free agent, but he has been gradually building up his form and health in order to finish out the season on a positive note.
“I’m healthy now and just looking to finish the season strong and positive while having a little fun in the process. I’ve had a lot of support from family, fans and friends and I owe it to them to get back on the track ASAP!”
With the final Diamond League meeting approaching in Brussels this Friday, September 6th, Dix looks to continue his comeback trail.
“We hope to compete in Brussels, Rieti, and probably shut it down until next year. He has been hard at work this season, building his body up, taking stock of the direction that the sport and its athletes must go towards not only for the fans, but also the sport itself. He’s a fighter and anybody who really knows Walt, knows that he doesn’t give up easily at all” said his brother Washington. “We set out a plan for this season, and Ibelieve, given the circumstances faced throughout the season, Walter will ultimately get the job done!”

A new Grand National Tips website is celebrating success after helping its visitors bash the bookies. The ‘Grand National Race’ website tipped race winner Auroras Encore a day before the race at odds of 100/1, helping lucky punters make hundreds of pounds each.
“We really had a field day with the Grand National win and have received loads of great comments and emails from our website visitors” said chief tipster James Walker. “One punter won over £1000 so that obviously makes us really happy that we are doing our job properly!”
The website is now looking to follow up on that success with the Scottish Grand National its next target. The race takes place on Saturday 20 th April at Ayr racecourse and is a popular race, with prize money of over £100,000 to the winner. The field is wide-open for this race, but again James is confident of success,
“Grand Nationals are unique races compared to 99% of other horse races and we think we have a good formula for success.”
After a successful first year in existence, James is hoping to go from strength to strength and hopes the ‘Grand National Race’ website will be the first of many sites that help punters make some money.

A unique peace building initiative will take place throughout the month of July, bringing the joys of longboard skateboarding to children and teens in Israel and the West Bank (Palestinian Authority).
The Search-Spark-Stoke Tour 2012, created by Michael Brooke, publisher of Concrete Wave Magazine, will teach as many as 200 children and teens in Israel and the West Bank how to longboard while establishing relationships between the Israeli and Palestinian participants. This initiative, which will include events held in both Israel and the West Bank, is being organized as part of the Surfing 4 Peace project with events hosted by Israel’s premiere youth peacebuilding organization, the Peres Center For Peace.
The unique approach and programming of the Search-Spark-Stoke combines Michael Brooke’s 37 years of skateboarding experience with the programmatic expertise of Explore Corps, the parent company of Surfing 4 Peace.
“Longboarding is exploding in popularity. It’s fun and easy to learn” explains Brooke.”Not everyone lives near surf and learning to ride can be a challenge. Longboards are much easier to learn than regular street skateboards and you don’t need to live by the sea to feel the thrill of the ride.”
According to Surfing 4 Peace leader Arthur Rashkovan, “We have made great gains in building ties between surfers across political and cultural borders in the past few years. Expanding our programming to include longboarding was a natural progression. We can include more people, and longboard when there are no waves.”
The Search-Spark-Stoke Tour 2012 will consist of four events in the cities of Jaffa, East Jerusalem, Jericho and Sderot. Instruction will be provided by Michael Brooke and a team of volunteers from Surfing 4 Peace. Each session will host 30-50 local youth participants selected by the Peres Center For Peace. At the events, youth will learn to longboard following a curriculum developed by Michael Brooke and Explore Corps. When Search-Spark-Stoke Tour 2012 concludes, 30 longboards and helmets will be donated to Explore Corps for use in future Surfing 4 Peace programming in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

July 11: Sderot
July 12: East Jerusalem and Jericho

Having established the partnership between Kick It Out and United, Spencer Freedman, who acts as the under-14s assistant coach and parent liaison manager, is looking forward to the occasion. The Englishman said: “We are proud to be one of the first soccer clubs to be carrying the message in the United States.
“It is vital to educate youth players on the importance of social behaviour both on and off the field, and we’re looking to generate as much support ahead of the One Game, One Community Trophy as possible. Let’s get unity in the community, and help in educating our youth to become responsible and productive members of our society.”
Former England international Earl Barrett, one of Kick It Out’s leading ambassadors, has been impressed by the commitment shown by United to spread awareness of the campaign. He said: “Kick It Out is proud to be affiliated to Coral Springs United.
“This is one of the first youth soccer programs to promote the campaign’s message in the United States, and the club deserves praise for spreading awareness around the importance of equality and diversity.

The sports club, who run leagues at over 20 venues across London, have opened 10 new leagues already in 2012 to cope with the demand of a 165% uplift in new members compared to the same period last year. At least another 20 more new leagues are expected before the end of the year.
Luke Mohr, founder and MD of Go Mommoth explains;
“In the last 6 months we’ve seen a huge increase in demand for our sports leagues across the board – when we ask new members what made them want to join there’s obviously a myriad of responses from getting fit to meeting new people but a huge number are also telling us that the increasing buzz of the Olympics has inspired them to go out and get active, rather than just heading straight to the pub when 5:30 comes.”
“The Olympic spirit has really started to grip Londoner’s”
In fact, over 65% of new members at Go Mammoth stated that living or working on the doorstep of the Olympic village had been either the main or a contributing factor in their decision to join one of the sports leagues. Mohr goes onto say;
“Our 5 A Side and London netball leagues are always popular but our less traditional sports like Dodgeball, Volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee are also experiencing significant growth – we see this as a sign that the Olympic spirit has really started to grip Londoner’s! Its great to see new members who may not have played any sport since their PE lessons at school getting involved, trying out new things and getting fit in the process.”
Go Mammoth, which, blends elements of a sports and social club is based on a concept Mohr saw working successfully in North America before founding the London club in 2010. Starting with just 4 leagues and 1 member of staff the club now operates leagues at 24 venues across London with 1000’s of members who take part in weekly leagues of indoor and outdoor sports including Football, Netball, Touch Rugby, Basketball, Dodgeball, Ultimate, Beach Volleyball and Softball.
