Pops Mensah-Bonsu Will Be Returning To Ghana For His 3rd Annual Pops 100 Camp

Pops Mensah-Bonsu will be back in his home nation of Ghana for the 3rd Annual Pops 100 Camp. Powered by Seed Academy, the camp will host the top 100 male and female basketball prospects in the country and over 2-days will provide an intensive camp for these kids at the grassroots and elite level. 

Pops was one of the few British Hoopers that was able to make it all the way to the NBA. Born and raise in North London, he attended St. Thomas More Catholic school and played for the Hackney White Heat in the English Basketball League (now the National Basketball League). His career included stops in San Antonio, Toronto, New Orleans and more. It also spanned across Europe as he spent time with a lot of EuroLeague teams as well, not to mention his time as a GB International in which he earned 40 caps. "The game of basketball has taken me around the world and allowed me to develop into a leader with integrity and honour and has been pivotal in major successes I have experienced in my life," said Mensah-Bonsu. "It is now my time for me to reciprocate and invest in Ghana's next generation." 

The aim of the camp is to develop the next generation of African leaders, using basketball and education as the vehicles to do so. As well as this, the camp is aiming to create a scalable, sustainable basketball culture that will cultivate and inspire the next generation of Ghanaian Youth. 

“The third annual Pops 100 Camp is my gift to Ghanaian youth and will allow us to be at the forefront of cultivating the rich yet hidden basketball societies that permeate sports culture in Ghana," stated Pops Mensah-Bonsu. "The camp will provide a platform for young, untapped Ghanaian basketball talent that can ultimately alter the course of many lives.”
