About Hugh Campbell Basketball Tournament
The Hugh Campbell Basketball "Classic" Tournament was established under the patronage of the late Hugh Campbell, the longest serving principal of A. F. Adderley (1961 – 1972). He left an incredible impression on the school and indeed the country at large.

In 2015, seven schools from the Government Secondary Schools Sports Association (GSSSA), seven from the Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools (BAISS), three from the Small Schools Sports Association, six from the Family Islands, two out of the Turks and Caicos Islands and one from the Caribbean participated in the tournament.
