On Monday, October 28th, members of charity organization Serbs for Serbs from New York organized a “Football tennis from the Blocks” tournament together with the owner of The Ground in Chinatown, Manhattan. Fans of soccer gathered from all sections of the Big Apple to compete in this mini-tournament and help socially impoverished families with many children. Eight teams and 16 contestants competed, and we were able to collect $610 in donations.
In a huge and nail-biting final, the first place was deservedly won by the Paja and Jare team in a tie break by a score of 22:20 in the third and final set. The second place went to the team 1244, while the third place was won by Dumbo moving.
