The Limassol Molos seaside court has now come to a close since yesterday. After 2 weeks of participants battling it out in the Opap Limassol 3on3 games, we have found our champion, team Humpolec from Czech Republic, who has won a place in The World Master Tournament in Debrecen this August the 30th and 31st.
