The partners are two primary schools (Zagreb and Lipovljani), two secondary schools (Zagreb and Kutina), one special education center (Velika Gorica), one kindergarten (Zagreb) and the City of Kutina.

Laptops and a projector had to be organized and prepared for this event, so that all the games could be broadcast via KGS and that players from the China Cup Berlin could watch the games in the Grand Slam without disturbing the players.  Read more...
