Five of these teams were gearing up for the 2024 IWBF Men’s Repechage event, while Australia was focused on their preparations for Paris 2024.

In an exhilarating final match, Australia emerged victorious, defeating Germany and claiming the championship title. Detailed results and further information about the tournament can be found on the Rolstoelbasketbal VZW Facebook page.

Reflecting on the successful event, Wouter Terryn, one of the organizers of the Easter Tournament, expressed his satisfaction, stating, “The tournament went really well, with high-level games and no significant problems to be solved.”

Looking ahead, he added, “Once we are recuperated, we are looking forward to the 20th year anniversary in 2025.”
