January 2016  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb!
I take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a happy 2016, lots of good health and joy, laughter and love throughout the year. I am happy and proud that our city, the European capital chosen as the best Advent destination in Europe, continues to feature a diverse offer throughout January and that its streets and squares are still full of visitors and tourists from all over the world. Take the opportunity to ice skate at one of the most beautiful ice skating rinks in Europe, and become part of the unforgettable atmosphere at the magical Zrinjevac Park; dance at the cheerful European Square, or travel the world in charming Kurelčeva Street.


Dear friends and business partners!
The year behind us was marked by excellent results for Zagreb’s tourism; it will go down in history as the year Zagreb was voted the best Christmas destination in Europe. All of this makes us very happy, especially as it proves that our guests think very favourably of us, and their votes confirm Zagreb’s reputation as an attractive city break destination.

The Karnataka State Basketball Association will be organizing the event under the aegis of the Basketball Federation of India.  Mysuru will be hosting the event after a gap of nearly 30 years. The last Senior National Basketball Championship to be held in the city was the 39th edition way back in 1987.

Top teams & players competing

Over 160 matches will be played in this premier league cum knockout gala that will see the country’s top international stars in action. Vishesh Bhriguvanshi (Indian men’s team captain), Anitha Paul Durai (veteran Indian women’s captain), Jeena PS (Kerala) and Karnataka’s own international stars Arvind Arumugam, Bhandavya HM and Rajesh Uppar are just few of the big names expected to participate in this marquee event.

“In terms of number of teams to register, this is the highest participation we have received in a long time,” said Shri K Govindaraj, President of Karnataka State Basketball Association (KSBBA) and President of Basketball Federation of India (BFI). “Bengaluru hosts many Championships, we wanted to give Mysuru an opportunity to showcase its infrastructure and host a National level event. With this exposure, hopefully Mysuru can also conduct an Asian level competition in the future.”

Speaking on the innate potential of basketball, he said, “If you go to any school, taluka or district stadium, you will find a basketball court. That is the ubiquitous presence of basketball, which we are going to take to greater heights.”

The organizing Karnataka State Basketball Association is pulling out all the stops to make this event a grand success. Hotel accommodation and meals will be provided to all the players, coaches, referees and officials during the 8-day event, all provided by the Karnataka State Basketball Association.
