Every four years the World Championship in Picigin is being held on Split’s sandy beach Bačvice. We are exciting that 2018. is the year when we can witness the battle of champions.
Although the first tournament took place in 2004, the tradition of playing „picigin“ is more than hundred years old. The aim of the game is to keep the ball in the air and out of the water for as long as possible, without catching it. Sometimes players are preforming acrobatic moves by throwing themselves to save the ball.
