Hitting the Streets!
Basketball is one of the most played and popular sports in the whole region. The basketball team of the Antalya Metropolitan Municipality successfully competes in the Turkish Basketball League. Since basketball is very popular in the region many street basketball tournaments are regularly held. One such tournament is the Street Basketball Tournament hosted in Alanya each August.
Every year in mid-September, successful teams from the Turkish and European football leagues come together in the Antalya Atatürk Indoor Sports Hall to compete in the week-long “Rixos Cup.”
Tens of thousands of elementary school students also participate in free summer courses arranged by the municipalities in Antalya in almost every sport.
