The second diplomatic charity basketball tournament entitled „Dunking Diplomats 2018”  was staged on 12th May in London.

In the Tournament, eight teams comprising around 100 „basket players“ pertaining to the London’s diplomatic corps took part, while the event was staged at the premises of the American School in London. The Tournament gathered considerable number of the diplomatic corps’ representatives, and competition rules applied were those issued by the Basketball England.  

Sponsors of the Tournament this year were: „IDS“ – a British company for supply to the diplomatic corps, BMW Diplomatic Sales and Diplomatic Cards Service, while the proceeds of the Tournament were destined to the charity purposes to help the children living in the marginalized London communities to develop their skills and habits toward enhancement of their socially-oriented attitude and easier socialization through their involvement in the intense sport programs.

On the occasion of this Tournament, at the premises of the Embassy a reception was held for the its participants, representatives of the local community and other guests, where in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere diplomatic experience was shared and new amicable contacts were established.
