16th International Mini Basket festival “ Rajko Zizic” was held during previous days , from Wednesday to Sunday, in Belgrade Fair. The festival was organized by Basketball Federation of Serbia , with great support of “ Naftna industrija Srbije”, general sponsor for many years, and “ Belgrade Fair” as a donor. .
Traditional manifestation gathered 218 teams in four age categories ( 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) from Serbia, region and abroad. During five days 300 games were played on five courts.
The height of the baskets was 2.60 and 2.75 meters, and the games were played with the ball number “5”. As in the previous years the score was not counted , because in Mini Basket everyone wins. All children received medals and diplomas , all clubs deserved cups, and the big interim cup this year was awarded to Basketball Club Kris Kros from Pancevo.
– We would like to thank to all Mini Basket friends , who joined us on our 16th birthday at Belgrade Fair – said Rade Georgieski, President of the Serbia Mini Basket Association.
Good luck till next January and next Mini Basket festival “ Rajko Zizic”!
