I hope the WKBL Rising Star Team will enjoy it on the big stage Ariake Arena.
The WKBL Rising Star Team, centered on Park Ji-hyun (Woori Bank), Lee So-hee (BNK Some), and Lee Hae-ran (Samsung Life Insurance), will be held in Gimpo on the morning of the 28th to play the event game of ‘W League All-Star 2022-2023 in Ariake’ held on the 29th. left the airport After arriving in Tokyo, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, we met at the auxiliary gym of Tokyo Ariake Arena.
Ariake Arena, which opened on December 21, 2019, demolished Deeper Ariake, which was used as a professional wrestling arena, and built a new one for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The Korean women’s volleyball national team has played at the stadium. It can accommodate about 5,000 people. Most WKBL stadiums have a capacity of 3 to 5,000 people.스포츠토토
The main court of Ariake Arena was originally used as a tennis court. We temporarily prepared a wooden court that can be used in the All-Star Game. The auxiliary gym has two courts, so it was possible to train without space restrictions. A locker room for players to use was also revealed. There is a downside that there are only 3 shower booths, but the facilities are clean.
Park Ji-hyeon, Lee So-hee, and Lee Hae-ran have played in other countries in gyms the size of Ariake Arena, but other players lacking international experience have never played in such a large arena. You can be overwhelmed by the atmosphere.
Since Japan has invested so much in basketball facilities, the W-League All-Star Game can be held in good facilities. Okinawa Arena, which will host the 2023 Basketball World Cup, also boasts state-of-the-art facilities.
The Korea-Japan Women’s Basketball All-Star Game is an event that can be held continuously. If it is held in a good stadium, it can give more meaning. It can act as a turning point for players who lacked international experience, and it can be a good study.
