ORAH, 25 June 2020 – For the 8th year in a row, the traditional ‘Guvno Basket’ tournament was held in the village of Orah near Vrgorac in the Dalmatian hinterland. 

Supported by former Croatian basketball player and Orah local Nikola Vujčić, ‘Guvno Basket’ was the initiative of Toni Jakičević who designed the game in which pairs of two players play on a unique four-meter-diameter basketball court.
