Sports

The registration tent for basketball, badminton, youth futsal, and table tennis/ping-pong is near the lower Italian Garden on MLK Drive. Bocce demonstrations will take place nearby. The community is invited to explore and play once the tournaments are over. Free yoga classes will be in a grassy area in the Croatian Garden (south of the Hungarian Garden).

The public can compete or just watch international sports galore, including futsal (street soccer) brought to Cleveland by former professional soccer player Otto Orf. Just like on the streets of Rio de Janeiro or Nairobi, teams will play right on MLK Drive. The Cleveland Cavaliers will be on-site with their interactive Caravan. And Bo Li, Director of the Cleveland Contemporary Chinese Culture Association, is bringing both badminton and table tennis (both in tournament form and open to the public).

Starting time is 1pm
