Last weekend the first games of the new year started! The weekend started off with Gents 2 playing for the top spot in the league against Hanze Stars MSE 1. Unfortunately they lost their first game of the season by quite a big margin. The Ladies then played against Pluto VSE 1 who were ranked 3rd in the league. Read more.
Are you interested in playing recreational or competition at Arriba? Come join the introduction practice(s)! Arriba has 4 competition teams, 3 male and 1 female team, playing at different levels and a recreational team that practices twice a week. Not only do we play basketball, but there are a lot of fun events, such as an introduction party, Sintarribaklaas and the New Years Tournament, organised throughout the year by different committees.

Each year at the end of May, GUMIT takes place. GUMIT is an international tournament organized by two student basketball associations in Groningen. For me it’s my third year in a row to participate at GUMIT and every year I’m wondering if it will be as fun as the previous year. Well, it is!
This year Arriba participated with 9 ladies (GO LADIES!) Read more.
On Friday night, the 9th of March, after a busy week at the university we, 5 players (Rens, Djordje, Glenn, Bob and Florian) of gents 3 and Kwa from the recreationals, came together at the sports center. Klaas wasn’t there tonight, so the injured Stijn would be coaching us. After a little stress about the shirts (we didn’t know who had them) we drove to Nijverdal. Read more.
Ladies 1 vs Kikkers Ladies 1
The ladies played last Friday against Kikkers from Borne. The warming-up was a little bit different than normal. It started in sportzaal 2 and after 21:00 everything needed to be prepared in sporthal 2. After that the ladies started their game against the number 4 of the competition. And they are number 4 for a reason. Read more.
The first quarter started somewhat slow, but quite surely the lay-ups started to hit and the shots started to fall. Gents 3 had already faced Amical 3 earlier, but in the first quarter the lead already started to build faster than the match before. In the second quarter the Arriba defense tightened further and with good results. Many Amical passes were intercepted and before they knew it, the fast breaks of Gents 3 hit their basket again and again. Read more.
Check out why you should join us on the 11th of March!! Read more.
Last Saturday, gents 3 went on a journey all the way to the north of Enschede to play The Jugglers. The previous match against this team resulted in a loss, so they knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game.
In the first quarter, both teams started off with a few quick points and the score was even when the first 5 minutes of Q1 were over. Read more.
Last Sunday we had the annual New Years Tournament which was awesome! The board worked until deep in the night for the oliebollen and a lot of Arribans played a great tournament the following day and stayed until deep in the night at the BBQ at Arno’s place following the tournament. Thank you all, it was a great day!
