Women’s Varsity Basketball Championships in Tsukuba

The University of Tsukuba’s women’s basketball team has qualified to play in the 57th Kanto Women’s Varsity Basketball League Championships. The championship games are being held in Tsukuba for the first time ever. The University of Tsukuba team is extremely strong this year. They have won three tournaments in a row, including the Kanto Tournament held in the spring, and they are hoping to make this the fourth. They are asking residents of Tsukuba to build up their community spirit and come to support them in their fight to win this tournament on a home court. The team colour is green, so they have asked people to show up to the games wearing something green so that we can show our opponents our “Tsukuba spirit”. Both games will be against Shoin University, another very strong team.

Sunday, October 7 from 5pm
Monday, October 8 from 4:20pm

At Tsukuba Capio Arena

Admission: free for high school students and under, free for university students with student ID, all others 1000 yen
