EasterCup Berlin-Moabit

We are happy to invite you to the Eastercup Berlin-Moabit 2015. In last years event we had difficulties finding enough wheelchair teams to put a valid tournament conference together. We really hope that with you participating in next years Eastercup we will be able to just that and bring even more basketball fans and players to the Eastercup Berlin-Moabit in 2015.
The tournaments opener will tip off at 18:30 on April 2nd of 2015, the last games will be held on April 6th for the youth teams and on April 4th for all adult and wheelchair teams. Ifyour team wishes to extend its stay in the German capital to have another practise before the tournament tips off or to have little shopping spree in one of Berlins various malls, please do not forget to contact us early so we have the possibility to arrange your extension with your accommodation.
Games will be held in two different arenas, one of them being the never sleeping centre court Alt-Moabit 10, 10557 Berlin. Both arenas and the accommodations are wheelchair ready. As accommodations we are able to offer you either rooms within a youth centre, HOSTELS or hotels. (zu finden unter "Gästeprogramm, Rahmemprogramm und Unterkünfte") Catering will be organized, including breakfast, lunch and dinner from April 3rd – 5th. Additional meals can be ooked(example: dinner on April 2nd).
The preliminary games will be held on April 2nd and 3rd, play-offs and play-downs will be held on 4th. Highlight will be the play-off final during the All Star Saturday Night Event on the centre court in front of a full crowd(ca. 400-800 visitors).Games will be held in four quarters each lasting eight minute. Only the last 2 minutes of the forth quarter will be stopped, the rest will be played in running clock mode. The games will be refereed by official wheelchair-basketball referees.Teams may be mixed and are free of age limitations.
