For the seventh year in a row, athletes will occupy the sports fields in Platka and compete in indoor soccer, 3v3 basketball, beach volleyball, disc golf and bocce.
On Saturday, August 19, former national team members, active athletes and recreational athletes will fight for the sports conquest of the "hill of enjoyment".
The best proof of the popularity of this multisport competition is the return of teams to Platak as well as the addition of new participants. Many also bring families who spend an active day at 1111 m above sea level in the fresh air and the rich offer on Platka. Barbecues are regularly booked months in advance, and after the evening's fun part, it remains to sleep in the Big and Little House.
This year, the largest number of teams so far have registered in bocce, which will be held for the first time at the new yoga. The disc golf tournament is taking on an international dimension, and beach volleyball and soccer have been filling up the lot the fastest for many years, so there will soon be a shortage of playing fields.
In addition to the senior tournament, the 3v3 basketball will also hold a wheelchair basketball tournament and a tournament for younger age categories, which last year proved to be a complete success, and the teams themselves applied for participation even after receiving invitations. The basketball part of the program is taken care of by the Kostrena Wheelchair Basketball Club, which is an excellent host of this tournament.
This year, the names of the registered players guarantee the quality of the game on all fields, and a great atmosphere and fun after the sports part is always guaranteed at Platko. For the first time, the Ina Food Truck Fresh Corner is a guest, where everyone will be able to refresh themselves and have a snack. All participants are provided with refreshments and t-shirts of the organizer. Girls who play beach volleyball will be able to test sports sunglasses from the Rijeka brand Damir Tau.
For the most successful participants, unique wooden awards with an engraved Platka mascot, the fluffy Platka, will be provided, and there will also be prizes provided by Zagrebačka pivovara, JGL dd, Darna - Liquor Factory Rovinj, Suza TB, Destilerija Aura, Delmerion kozmetika, Erste banka, Pero- the Kvarner Sports Recreation Association were the organizers themselves.
