Invitation "International Basketball Youth Tournament 2019"

BasketballAfter the big success of the 2 last events, the "International Basketball Youth Tournaments - Athens 2017 & 2018" we are glad to invite you to our 3rd  "International Basketball  Youth Tournament 2019" which will be held this summer (20-23 June 2019) again in Kifissia, the northern suburb of Athens. Coorganizers of this event are the municipality of Kifissia and the basketball club AENK.

All tournaments organized by the Company of IBYT aim to promote healthy competition through various not only athletic, but also cultural activities. Young athletes, coaches, companions and parents will come in contact with the true athletic spirit, Greek culture and of course with the genuine Greek hospitality, building thus strong links not only with Greek people, but with people from all over the world.


Our tournaments take place in the north suburbs of Athens, which is the capital and largest city in Greece. It dominates the Attica region and is one of world's oldest cities. It is spanning over 3,400 years, and its earliest human presence starts somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennia BC. There you can find much interesting sightseeings and activities which all compose a perfect environment for this athletic and summer event.

In the last two tournaments (2017  & 2018) all teams were a perfect example of fair play, of dynamic, participative and fighting spirit and showed great basketball skills & abilities.


In the 2017 tournament the dominance of the gold medal winner  (in the age category boys U16), the National Team of Ukraine, was indisputable.΄Representatives of the Embassies of Ukraine, Turkey, Israel, Serbia, Montenegro and Fyrom, the well-known sports journalist Mr. Skoundis, the sponsors of the event Chipita, Stihl, EggPro, ΝΟΥΝΟΥ, numerous A1 basketball league players and many representatives of the coorganizing Municipality of Kifissia honored the tournament with their presence.


In the 2018 tournament the most dominating teams were ALYA from Istanbul Turkey (gold medal winner in the age category boys U14) and Ironi from Tel Aviv Israel (gold medal winner in the age category boys U16). Both teams provided a high standard basketball in a very difficult competition. This event was honored as well by the presence of many distinguished sports related and not only people.
