20th Edition of the City of Alaior Base Basketball Tournament

 

A tournament with history

The tradition of basketball in Menorca is being established with the 20th Edition of Torneig de Bàsquet Base Ciutat d'Alaior . A sporting event that combines passion, tradition and youth in the heart of Menorca.

This tournament, which is held during the Easter school holidays, has as its main objective to promote grassroots sports among the cadet and children's categories, a goal that has been successfully achieved in previous editions. The city of Alaior is not a place of competition, but rather it becomes a basketball party that brings together more than 1,200 people including players, coaches, and referees.
 
In the 2019 edition, 84 teams participated, of which 66 were from outside Menorca, with a total amount of 1,260 participants. From the first edition until now, 597 teams have participated, 400 of these coming from outside the island, bringing together a total of almost 9,000 male and female players.
 
Previous editions witnessed company, sporting intensity and exemplary coexistence between all participating teams. Furthermore, beyond rivalry, this tournament has established itself as a meeting that promotes local support, with more than one hundred local companies that back up this basketball festival. With five venues distributed throughout Menorca and a wide representation of different regions, the next edition promises to be, once again, a milestone in youth basketball and a symbol of unity and passion for sport.

This tournament has had the mission of promoting sport among the youngest, with the aim of promoting grassroots sport and healthy coexistence between different categories
