Jazine Hall

From the very beginnings of the basketball game in Zadar, which dates back to the 1920s, it was played on all kinds of surfaces, from clay to concrete, all in the open, on the site of today's Jazine Hall. Basketball was played in the open air until the mid-1960s, when the game was increasingly moved from outdoor courts to halls.
The Basketball Association of Yugoslavia made the decision that the first league players in the 1964/1965 season have to have a hall in their city or they will play all the matches on the side (in another city). The new hall began to emerge in 1967, and by the end of the year, it already had a basic outline. The construction lasted 70 days, and the official opening of the Hall was held on February 19, 1968 - a league match against Belgrade. Miljenko Valčić scored the first basket in Jazine after the classic combination with Krešimir Ćosić.
The hall, which officially seats about 3,000 people, would be crowded with up to 7,000 spectators at all major matches. The magic of the legendary Jazine lasted for 40 years. In a little less than half a century, generations of basketball fans have been brought up in it, and the hall remembers the most glorious moments of Zadar sport.
Today, basketball clubs use the basketball hall Jazine: Sonik - Puntamika, Jazine, Zara and the Basketball Club of Persons with Disabilities Diadora.
The hall hosts programs of sports clubs, regular trainings and competitions, as well as various sports events of other sports associations.
The total number of athletes who use the hall is about 600. The City of Zadar is investing in improving the conditions in the sports hall through current and investment maintenance, so in 2018 and 2019 sanitary facilities for athletes with disabilities, access to the hall for people with disabilities, heating and regular facility maintenance works.
