Xiao Liu, who works in Shenzhen, was called back to the village in advance by the village director of his hometown in Guangxi.

With a height of 1.89 meters, he is the main force of the village basketball team. The village director told him to prepare for the town basketball league in advance and strive to be in the top eight this year.

The strong colors that are not seen in the mainstream vision are scattered among the villagers’ word of mouth. Rural basketball has always grown spontaneously and has its own ecology. Compared with the “NBA” on the other side of the ocean and the domestic “CBA” which is tepid, people jokingly call this kind of rural basketball league within easy reach-“Village BA”

In the villages, towns and villages below the fourth-tier cities in China, there are China’s most “wild” basketball games and the “wildest” basketball games.

fan

. From South China to Northwest, what can make the whole village mobilize is probably a basketball game.

Pingliang, Gansu. In order to watch the ball, for the big brothers in Zhuanglang County who can’t squeeze into the frontcourt, the branches on the side of the stadium are no less than the boxes at the Staples Stadium in Los Angeles. In Linxia, ​​an uncle could hold a poplar tree and hold on to the final whistle. The only thing that made him regretful was that he couldn’t applaud when he saw a good ball.

In Guangxi, in addition to county-level competitions, every township has village-level competitions starting on the third day of the Lunar New Year. Participants are mainly young adults and college students from each village. There is a commentary on the podium, which is part-time by the local physical education teacher. There are about seven or eight villages in a township, and it is held in another village every year.

Xiao Liu said that more than a decade ago, the venue was still muddy, with lines drawn in white and gray and wooden backboards. Now it has become a concrete floor and tempered glass backboard. In the past, some villages were small and did not have uniform uniforms, so they wore uniform color T-shirts and wrote numbers on their backs. Now they are generally custom-made team uniforms.

In the “Village BA” field, playing with brothers, father and son soldiers on the field

, It’s not uncommon.

Fuyang, Zhejiang. The Dazhang Village Team of Changlu Town and the Chengxiang Street Team started a warm-up match. In a game, three generations of “stars” in the village were gathered. Zhang Dinghui, who played as a defender on the field, was a construction engineer; his father, Zhang Baigang, a civil servant of the town government, was the substitute; Zhang Chengpu, his grandfather, was a retired defender of the village team.

There are basketball courts in the villages and villages of Changlu Town, where men and women, young and old, all know basketball. Sometimes the referee made a mistake, and the seventy-year-old lady present could also point it out. “Family teams” can also pull out ten or twenty teams, and many families can play for three generations.

According to statistics, the population of Changlu Town who participates in basketball all year round exceeds 40% of the town’s population. There are more than 20 amateur basketball teams in 8 administrative villages, schools, enterprises and institutions, and 12 standard light courts.

But not every township can reach such a scale.

In Xinchun Village, Zhuchang Township, Nayong County, Guizhou, the local villagers have loved to play basketball for generations, but they suffer from limited flat land and no basketball court. Finally, in 2016, I raised my own funds and built a 1,000-square-meter cave basketball court, which fulfilled the basketball dreams of the young and old in the village.

Of course, for the “village BA” scene with thousands of people, sometimes “troublemakers” will appear.

In Nanjiang, Sichuan, when the opposing team’s offense is about to succeed, blowing the whistle secretly will have the effect of being confused. In the laughter of the audience, the organizing committee’s loud horns “persuaded” with heart and soul, which will also become an anecdote that fans talk about after the game.

Zhanjiang, Guangdong. In the hearts of the villagers in Huanglue Village and Wenche Village, the sport of basketball played a role no less than “ping-pong diplomacy.” to date. 28 years later, a basketball game between the two villages promoted the ice-breaking of village-level “diplomatic relations”.

The young generations of the two villages gathered in the arena, high-fiving each other, and annoying the village.

Jinjiang, Fujian. In the mid-1990s, in Dongpu Village, in order to celebrate the entrance of the students to university, the whole village created the “Jinbang Cup” basketball game. After more than 20 years of development, the “Jinbang Cup” has become a well-known local brand event.

Now every summer, Dongpu Village has continuous basketball competitions. The average daily number of spectators is nearly 1,000. The peak spectator reaches 12,000, and the online traffic of the match can reach more than 100,000 per game.

In the village, basketball is not just a sport for men. “Half the Sky” will also end up competing. On October 25th, a village-level women’s basketball game was played in a certain area in Guangxi. The female players ignored the rules and ran wildly with basketballs. There was fierce confrontation on the court. Cheer up outside the court. It is not impossible to play basketball into rugby. . Except that the referee couldn’t find the value of his own existence for a time, everyone who participated in the competition was extremely happy.

Even in their free time, the aunts and daughters-in-law of the village can also play a water basketball game.

Many villagers said that they used to go home during the Chinese New Year because of the lack of cultural and entertainment activities. Many people like to gather together to play cards and even gambling. Now that there is a basketball game, everyone’s mind is focused on improving the performance of the village. Those who can play are on the court, those who don’t know how to play are for logistics support and cheerleading. “Big bosses” who mix well outside will also provide sponsorship.

In China, the Spring Festival is a festival full of sophistication. It is the time when many villages have the largest number of people who have been empty for a year. Of course, it is also a time for wanderers to go back to the village every year to show their wealth fortune.

The folks love to watch basketball. The “big bosses” who have mixed up in various places and all walks of life are happy to sponsor the game funds. Pulling a banner in the arena can also become the envy of the villagers and get a little “returning home” feeling.

Anshun, Guizhou. After the Spring Festival every year, the “Liuzhi Neighborhood Committee Men’s Basketball Championship” kicked off on time. The bosses donate RMB 2,000 and you can put up a banner.

The tournament is not empty and there are no trophies. The prize money of the competition is in the form of cash, which is carried in a plastic bag and hung on the rostrum, which is not a “naked” appearance.

“Village BA” is also an annual advertising time. Generally, well-known local companies often form their own teams, such as the brick factory team, the mining team, the garden team, the auxiliary material team, the hotel team… these teams with different names and full of local flavors abound.

The folks use various complicated relationships, such as whether their relatives work in the factory, the neighbor’s Yaoer said that the brand’s products are good, etc., to find reasons to support a certain team.

“Village BA” does not have complicated rules and regulations. It is often in the habit of previous years that the villages breathe each other out, ask the “big bosses” of the villages, and after chatting about the sponsorship of the event, the schedule is set to start. Sponsored by the boss, the “village BA” began to have a taste of “commercialization”.

For county-level competitions, the hearts of the “big bosses” are even more wild. The boss who won the competition won the glory for the villagers, received praise from the neighbors, caused a sensation in the local area, and became famous and opened his own business. This also stimulated more “big bosses” to join the team sponsoring the game, and began to invite foreign aid to improve the results.

At this time, people like Wang Cong are needed. Wang Cong is a foreign player agent who focuses on the “village match”. In recent years, Wang Cong mainly looks for suitable players for the bosses to play in the game.He said that some bosses will even invite a whole team of foreign players to gain attention.

Generally in several southern provinces, the appearance price of a foreign aid is around 6000-8000 yuan. Of course, the “big bosses” who spend “large amounts” of foreign aid can also realize their own or their son’s basketball dreams at this time.

Some of these foreign players who played “village BA” in various provinces and towns in China were former national players from some countries in the Middle East and Africa, and even former professional players in the Australian League. Some of them have won the Australian NBL twice with the team. champion.

But these foreign aids, even if they won the championship, everything else brought by the championship has nothing to do with them except the moment the podium appeared. The trophy will become a collection of the “big boss”, and before the money is left, taking a picture of the trophy and taking a photo is the last intersection between them and this team.

Wang Chong said that in foreign countries, if you are not a professional player, it is difficult to make money.But if you play well in a village match in China, players can even get a year’s income from professional players in a short period of time.

Last year, in the Hengxian Township Basketball Tournament in Guangxi, there were as many as 30 foreign players from 25 participating teams, and only 4 teams did not have foreign players. Although the remaining players are domestic, there are also 43 non-locals.

The Pinglang Township basketball team invited former Rockets player BJ-Yang to join, and won the fifth place in the fierce “Village BA”, which was the best result in the team’s history.Luan Chengcheng introduced former NBA player Michael Anderson, but he didn’t even make it into the quarterfinals.

The more money is spent, the more foreign aid is hired.

In Dongguan, Guangdong, the basketball game is an indispensable program for the Chinese New Year every year. In order to win, the teams have spent money on soliciting foreign aid. It is said that former NBA dunk king “Little Potato” Nate Robinson will participate in the 17th Yantian Cup Basketball Tournament held in Yantian Village, Fenggang Town, Dongguan City.

If you win, you get a bonus. If you lose, you may not get the appearance fee. Therefore, in these “must win” games, the confrontation becomes particularly fierce.

“Village BA” referees are mostly basketball “big takers” in villages and towns. For the participating teams, the judgment is basically resigned to fate. If both teams have foreign aid who “eat this bowl of rice”, it is not uncommon for fierce confrontations and disputes over judgments to lead to big fights. Thus, in the “wildest” basketball game, a particularly vigorous scene will be staged.

After the heat caused by curiosity subsided, some places began to restrict the use of foreign aid. Even, ID cards must be checked before the game, and non-members of the village are not allowed to play.

Sanming, Fujian.The 55th “Xinqiao Cup” Basketball League was held in Xinyang Town, Youxi County. This small mountain township with decades of tradition of basketball tournaments stipulates that the participating players must be villagers. “Even the son-in-law in the village did not have the opportunity to play.

”。

I have seen a lot of big bosses’ various “bounty games” showing foreign aid, but these pure villagers’ games have made the basketball hearts of the villagers even more enthusiastic. Watching the children of the village working hard on the court for the glory of the village, every villager present yelled a heartfelt cheer.

“You don’t have to fight, but the village BA must participate.” Xiao Liu said.

In Hengxian County, Guangxi, on the night of the opening ceremony of the 29th Township Basketball Tournament, the Hengxian Gymnasium, which can accommodate 3,600 people, was full of seats. Many people were annoyed that they could not buy tickets.

Tickets for the semi-finals and finals are 80 yuan and 100 yuan respectively. Although the fare is expensive for the consumption level of the county, many people still queue up with a small bench early in order to grab the ticket.

What are they drawing? There may be only one answer.

Pure love for basketball
