The crowded grandstand of the Partizan basketball fields showed how citizens of Belgrade felt of the project “Trojka iz bloka” of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs: it is our child, which has grown so much in only four years, seen and helped people worldwide, and has become unique as a symbol of benevolence and sport in the best spirit of tradition of the Serbian people.

As the evening was falling down upon the confluence of the Sava and the Danube rivers, the speakers beneath the Sahat-kula were playing the anthem of the Republic of Serbia in the performance of the young singing hope Andjela Tasic. “Trojka iz bloka” officially begun!

The gathered crowd was first addressed by Milos Simovic on behalf of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs and called it to applaud to the second tournament on the fortress, and afterwards he told the incredible and touching story about the life of the sport-charity project “Trojka iz bloka”. After the thunderous applause, the master took over the microphone – a popular singer Marko Bulat, who sent a short and clear message that the mare keeping of the tournament “Trojka iz bloka” was a great victory, and that the trophy for the most shots should go to the best.

With much laughter and as much as five balls shot towards the basket, the first contestants appeared. The official DJ of “Trojka iz bloka” Sale L THCF was up to the task – the passers-by who were standing and listening to the music would eventually come to apply for the tournament while Bore and Stefan from THC La Familija were wholeheartedly calling and cheering them.

The magic of “Trojka iz bloka” was complete when these boys started rapping their hits and shortly took over the field from the contestants – they were singing a song dedicated to our golden basketball players who are racking up victories on the European Championship! Many media broadcasted the wonderful picture, including the national broadcasting service RTS, Sport Network, Sputnjik, while was broadcasting the tournament live as well as last year, on which we use this opportunity to thank them.

The spectacle on Kalemegdan attracted great number of visitors, and Charity organization Serbs for Serbs tried to gave its best – the rich program lasted until late at night. Three-pointers and failures were taking turns, as well as performances.
The dancing studio Flaj came with two teams, and to the particular joy of the male audience, the girls in provocative red skirts and with basketball balls came out first and performed the dance on the level of the world players and majorettes. A great friend of the project “Trojka iz bloka” Bosko Cirkovic Skabo from the group Beogradski Sindikat sung several of his songs, while at the same time the boys from SVEBOR were on the lawn beneath the fortress showing what they know and practice by cherishing the tradition of the Serbian chivalrous fight.

Some time before the end of the tournament, the lights on the fields were shut down. But it wasn’t due to some problems, on the contrary. The conditions were set for the performance of unique dancing group in Serbia UV Dance. The lights on the outfit with the dancing movements in the dark were effective – the children from grandstand rushed right after the performance to take a photo with the unusual dancing “aliens” who presented their magic. Prior to them, Fanky Boys Flaj from the dancing studio Fral performed something quite the opposite with the awning on the field reminded the fans of the street culture and rap on break dancers and won the sympathies with their stunts. The tournament on Kalemegdan was another in a row in which the friend of the project “Trojka iz bloka” Uncle Dzo presented its verses.
