Third Malta Masters Basketball Tournament to be held in September 2015
The sunny island of Malta in the heart of the Mediterranean will be the venue for a basketball tournament which is being organised by three players from the Malta Masters team. Predrag Andrejevic, Mark Vassallo and Peter Perotti have teamed up once again to organise the Third Malta Masters Basketball Tournament which is being held over the weekend of Friday 25 September to Sunday 27 September 2015. Six local and international teams will be participating in the Men’s Over 40 category which is being held at the Ta’Qali New Pavilion. Meanwhile for the first time three Ladies teams will also be competing in a separate competition which will be held at the same venue.
In the Men’s Category the winners of the past two editions, ‘Tal-Ajkla’, a local team and ‘London Eagles’ will be competing against ‘MSC Falcons’ which is a team of Serbian nationals based in Malta, ‘Malta Masters Suns’, ‘Tuesday Jazz’ and ‘Kraukli’ from Latvia who will be taking part for the first time. The Ladies Competition will see the participation of two local teams, ‘Malta Masters A’ and ‘Malta Masters Hoopers’ and ‘Sussex Select’ from the UK.
After having extended support to the Malta Community Chest Fund during the past two editions, this year the organisers have decided to donate proceeds to Puttinu Cares, a childrens’ cancer support group which works towards optimising the well-being of children with cancer and their families by offering on-going support to minimize the financial burden thereby enabling parents to concentrate on the task of caring for their sick child.
The Organisers would also like to thank the Malta Basketball Association, the Maltese Serbian Community and a number of sponsors for supporting this Tournament. In particular Azzopardi Fisheries, Rado Systems, Quest, Ofion Software, Cro-Ser Company Limited, Billboard Advertising Limited, Caffe Raffael, Happy Days Childcare Centre and Farsons.
