- National Teams
Team Berlin and Team Rotterdam took the Summer Jam Finals crowns in the men’s and women’s categories, respectively, on Saturday at Clapham Common.
After a summer that saw qualifiers being held across six outdoor courts in Europe – all renovated by Foot Locker – each country sent their winning team, with Barcelona, Berlin, London, Milan, Paris, Rotterdam all represented in the 5 on 5 knockout tournament.
The London teams; OTS and Powerpuff Gyals – along with one other women’s team, Triple Threat, who jumped in for Paris who were without a female side, were unable to bring home the title in front of home crowds.
The straight knockout tournament saw Powerpuff Gyals reach the final before falling to Rotterdam – knocking out Triple Threat in the semi-finals, while OTS went out in the opening round, also at the hands of Rotterdam.
Meanwhile, in the King and Queen of the Trenches 1 on 1 competition, London took home the title in the Women’s competition, with Melita Emanuel-Carr being crowned, while in the men’s it was Rotterdam’s Caleb Vijber.
After the basketball, there was an after party on the courts, with Sainté performing on the New Balance stage.
