FIRST INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT – YOUTH WHEELCHAIRBASKETBALL, 18-19-20 October 2019 – Blankenberge (Belgium)
Dear Basketball-Friends and Players
We are delighted to invite you to the first edition of our International Wheelchair basketball Tournament for Youth wheelchair basketball teams. The tournament will take place during the week-end of 18-20th of October 2019 in the gym of Sport Vlaanderen located in Blankenberge, Belgium.
This location has the advantage of providing accommodation, housing and meals, as well as the gym centralized in one Centre, close to the Belgian coastline. In view of our aim to accommodate youth teams with mainly players with physical limitations, the concept of a centralized approach enables us to limit transportation of teams to an absolute minimum.
Teams joining this tournament from abroad have the possibility to fly-in via airports such as Ostend, Brussels (Zaventem), Charleroi (Brussels South) and Antwerp (Deurne). Check-in possibilities are foreseen on October 18th.
We plan for transportation with vans adapted for transportation of wheelchairs. When required, this will be charged separately.
The tournament will start on Saturday, briefing on Friday evening or latest on Saturday 9am. Our first game is planned Saturday at 10:30am. We are doing our utmost to ensure a competitive, yet challenging and sportive, event and plan to finish around 5pm on Sunday October 20th.
