» Together with a team of former basketball players from the Saint-Michel d’Avranches club, we are organizing the second edition of this mixed 3×3 senior tournament. Last year we welcomed twelve teams and spectators who came to cheer them on, all in a very friendly atmosphere. It was a great day,” says Mathis Lechatellier, member of Baie Ball’s organizing team.
