street basketball tournament

The Two vs Two

The two vs two

Have you ever lain awake at night wondering whether you’re really the best at basketball? 

Us too. 

To answer this question once and for all and stand together while donating money to a good cause, we’ll be battling against other teams from Copenhagen’s business community in a (mostly) friendly round-robin street basketball tournament: Two vs Two. 

And there’s going to be more than just pride at stake. 

Whoever wins the competition will choose a charity based in Copenhagen, and we, together with BLS Hafnia and Vernon x Kayak Bar, will be donating DKK 30.000 to them.

We think it’s a fantastic way to have some fun and donate funds to a good cause, while representing Copenhagen’s amazing community. 

As an added bonus, you’ll be able to grab a refreshing drink from hard seltzer specialists DAN:SK, or a tasty burger from Gasoline Grill, who are both sending trucks to the tournament. 

We’d absolutely love your support during Two vs Two, so come down to HomeCourt to cheer us on. 

The tournament takes place at 5pm on Wednesday 10th August at Julius ThomsensPlads 1, 1925, in front of Forum in Copenhagen.

information & rules

Tournament Rules

All teams will play each other once. The winners of each match will receive two points, and the two teams with the most points at the end will meet each other in one final deciding match. Should more than two teams be level on points, points difference from the games will be the deciding factor as to which team qualifies. 

Match Rules

Each match will be 4 minutes long, and the first team to reach 11 points wins. If the time runs out before either of the two teams has reached 11 points, the team with the most points wins. If the score is equal after regular time, there will be overtime, and the first team to score two points will win the match.

Scores

The tournament follows the street basketball rules where you can score 1 or 2 points per successful throw, depending on where you are on the court when you score.

Losers Ball

After a point, the team that did not score starts with the ball and must round the top of the court before they are allowed to score.

Out of Bounds

Should the ball go out of bounds, the team, who did not touch the ball as it went out of bounds, get’s the ball on the top and needs to “check” the ball with an opponent before starting the game again.
