A basketball tournament with the participation of the best women’s teams in Petrozavodsk was held at the Coral Sports Palace.
The 4 strongest teams from Petrozavodsk took part in the tournament, organized with the active support of the Basketball Federation of the Republic of Karelia. Among them is the national team of Petrozavodsk State University, which consists of athletes representing seven educational institutions of the university:

The head coach of the team is Drobysh Alexey Sergeevich, senior lecturer of the Department of Theory and Methods of Physical Education.
The tournament was held in a round robin system, which gives you the opportunity to try your hand at all the participants in the tournament. The PetrSU team won all their matches and took 1st place.
It should be noted that this is the first tournament to be held after an eight-month pause (all official starts were canceled) due to the limitations of the COVID-19 pandemic. The girls showed a very good level of basketball, despite the fact that there was no competitive practice for a long time.
The national team of PetrSU considered participation in this tournament from the standpoint of preparation for the main start of this season – the Championship of Karelia among women’s teams, which will be held on June 4-6, 2021. Let’s wish our girls a successful performance in the fight for the best women’s basketball team in the Republic of Karelia!
the leaders wished.
