El Rosario becomes reference point for basketball
El Rosario is currently hosting the VI Radazul Basketball Tournament which started on July 17th and continues until July 28th.
The event is organised by the Radazul Costanera basketball club with the collaboration of El Rosario council and brings together amateur and professional players.
The games are being played at the Municipal Hall of El Chorrillo in Radazul.
The final is on July 28th at 9pm with matches taking place every day at 7pm and 8.30pm.
Previous tournaments have seen the involvement of some top players, such as Nicolás Richotti, Jaime Heras and Sergio Rodríguez and Cuban international Geoffrey Silvestre.
Councillor for sports of El Rosario, Iván Armas, hailed the continuity of this summer tournament, which CB Radazul Costanera launched for the first time in 2012, as it is a way to boost the sport of basketball in El Rosario and a great challenge during the summer break of the competitions.
The top two teams from each group will progress to the second round, where they will play quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final, plus a play-off between the third and fourth places as a consolation.
