Indonesian students gather in Groningen for Groens Cup sports tournament
Honouring a fine tradition, the Groningen chapter of the Indonesian Student Association, PPI-G, used the Ascension Day holiday weekend to organise the Groens Cup. The Groens Cup, taking its name from what the first Indonesian students called Groningen, is open to teams of Indonesian students from all universities and hogescholen in the Netherlands. They compete with each other in sports as diverse as basketball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, arm wrestling, chess, and the capsa card game for prizes, but mostly for the spirit of companionship. The Indonesian Ambassador to the Netherlands, H.E. Mr. Junus Habibie, opened the event, and a team from the Embassy participated quite competitively in the events, earning the overall winner’s prize.
The University of Groningen and the Hanzehogeschool co-sponsor the tournament, which takes place at the ACLO sports facilities.
