The first edition of the Lisbon Basketball Youth Cup took place on June 27 at the Henrique Miranda Pavilion in the outskirts of Lisbon. We had a blast, together with over 100 young athletes from U14, U16, and U18 boys and girls teams, who played their best basketball in exciting matches full of grit, skill, and loads of fun!
Historic Lisbon, Portugal's capital, continues to expand while remaining at the top of the old continent's capitals, winning the most prestigious international tourism awards.
