torneigbasquet2013 web

The Trasmapi Formentera Basketball Club will celebrate this year the second edition of the Trasmapi Island of Formentera Basketball Tournament on 15 and 16 June at the Antoni Blanc Sports Centre. This, as announced by the Formentera councilor of Sports and Local Participation, Sergio Jiménez, the sports director of the Trasmapi Formentera Basketball Club, Jordi Duart, and the director of marketing at Trasmapi, the maritime transport company which is also sponsor of the tournament and of CB Formentera.

This year's tournament is centred around training and markedly slanted toward a promotion of basketball among young players. In attendance will be Zona 5 (Mallorca), CB Sa Bodega, CD Tanit, Cric Ses Salines and our own Club Basquet Trasmapi Formentera. Together, they will bring a total of 13 teams and close to 200 players from the pre-mini, mini-basket, and infantil categories.

A weekend-long intensive tournament, the main event will be the Sunday morning show-down between the majority of competitors. The event's “express” format was conceived to allow all teams an opportunity to compete against each other, going head-to-head in mini-games of 15 and 30 minutes in length, depending on the category.

There will be 2 intensely-packed days of games and competitions, in which young basketball players from our islands will be able to play with, compete against and spend time with players from other clubs. The tournament's sponsor, the TRASMAPI maritime transport company, offers players, specialist staff, club delegates and accompanying parties significant discounts. The CBF has established special discounts on accommodation and vehicle rental with different local collaborators (contact organisation).

The competitive formats are:
Pre-mini: Five teams in this category. Four mini-games of 15 minutes each will be played, with player-opponent changes every two minutes.
Girls mini: Four teams in this category. Three mini-games of 20 minutes each will be played, with player-opponent changes every two minutes.
Boys mini: Three teams in this category. Mini-games of 30 minutes each will be played, with player-opponent changes every five minutes.
Girls infantil: Two teams that will compete against each other in a standard game of four, ten-minute quarters.
