The EuroLeague All-Star game tips off on Tuesday night in Gdynia, Poland, but there were plenty of activities before the event to keep players busy.

On Monday night, players took off the high-tops and put on the bowling shoes and took part in a competition that that was ultimately won by the Rest of the World's Candice Dupree.

The Good Angels Kosice star, who is known for racking up double-doubles in Europe, was so prolific with the bowling ball that she earned the nickname 'Strike'.

On Tuesday, players visited an English-language kindergarten in the seaside city to pose for photos, sign autographs and promote basketball.

Team Europe and the Rest of the World had practices at the The Sport and Show Hall "Gdynia" on Tuesday morning.

UMMC Ekaterinburg's Sandrine Gruda, Galatasaray's Sylvia Fowles, Beretta Famila Schio's Liron Cohen and Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje point guard Sue Bird remained after to run a basketball clinic for players in the Lotos Gdynia youth teams.

All Star coaches Laszlo Ratgeber, Gundars Vetra and George Dikeoulakos held a separate clinic nearby for aspiring coaches in Poland.
