In the Presidents’ Memory, the 2010 edition has been extraordinarily successful. And we are already preparing the 2011 edition that will take place the next Easter weekend 23rd, 24th and 25th of April, 2011.
The requirements that we carry in our organization always finds its fulfillment in the three days of happiness that the public shows during the tournament.
For this 22 ° CHALLENGE OF ROBERT AND ZOE SCRIVE, we will have time for reflection without resting on our laurels. It is up to us to work with discipline, reaching the pinnacle of our ambitions.
With the support of "EURODISTRICT, we are pleased to reintroduce a selection made up of players from West Flanders, Wallonia Picardy and major urban centers of Lille.
The fame of this Tournament is a true reflection of our ability to organize the event radiating internationally. Join us so that together we can still write beautiful pages in the book of this wonderful sports adventure.
That is indeed a spectacular event that brings people together and focused on revealing how sport can give the best when it remains faithful to its values.
During three days in fact, Tourcoing will once again be the world capital of basketball in attracting rising stars of the discipline from all over Europe, Russia, the United States and elsewhere. It is thus, often, a long journey made by our cadets and juniors to come to our city. And nobody, under any circumstances, would miss this event, this is the level at which the athletes value this tournament in their charts. These are young athletes, who have not earned their ticket to Tourcoing simply by accident and whose talent justifies the ambition to become known and recognized as the champions of tomorrow.
The public from Tourcoing, metropolitan and Belgian, already have their own habits at the Leo Lagrange center as they know that all the information from the posters would absolutely be kept. Turning situations, disappointments, surprises, joys ... The World Tournament of the Young Guard, concentrated in emotion, also has the gift to cultivate the ability to gather, share, excitement beyond borders, cultures, and differences. Because we recognize ourselves in those values, Tourcoing fully supports this classic international event.
If I am not willing to risk myself in the game predictions, I still know in advance that the winning team, wherever it would come from, will have to fight hard under the basket to bring the highly coveted trophy. And it's obviously not the audience, eager for suspense, for beautiful individual actions as much as for collective movements that will complain.
