End of Year bicommunal basketball tournament
CCMC member PeacePlayers-Cyprus is organising its end-of-the-year basketball tournament for youth ages 11 to 16 on Saturday, the 5th of May at Poliproponitirio (behind Lefkotheo Stadium) in Nicosia, from 10:30-14:00. The aim of this event is to bring children from different communities from across Cyprus together to play basketball in an inclusive and fun-filled environment and celebrate the completion of another year of bicommunal activity and sport interaction. “This tournament is a great way to promote the sport of basketball but also to bring out a message that cooperation and collaboration through sport is possible by encouraging Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot youth to interact with each other and participate. Our tournament will bring together over 150 children to play and learn with each other over an afternoon of basketball, food and music. All are welcome to come and watch us!” said Marina Vasilara, PeacePlayers – Cyprus Managing Director.
