Manama, May 3 (BNA) -- Bahrain champions Al Ahli are set to represent the kingdom in this year's Arab Clubs Basketball Championship in Jeddah, which tips off tomorrow.

Eight teams are taking part in the annual event, including two each from hosts Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Bahrain, the UAE, Kuwait and Oman each have just one entrant.

Ahli, who left yesterday for Jeddah, have been drawn in a tough group 'A' alongside Saudi's Uhud, Oman's Nazwa and Qatar's Al Gharaffa. Group 'B' comprises Saudi's Al Ettihad, Kuwait's Al Qadsia, the UAE's Al Shabab and defending champions Al Rayyan of Qatar.

The Bahrainis open their campaign tomorrow against Gharaffa, and then take on Uhud on Thursday. They then play their final group game against Nazwa on Saturday.
