Gus Macker Basketball is making their debut appearance in Cape Girardeau this year to host a basketball tournament fundraiser. Gus Macker brings helpful tools to host fun and unique basketball tournaments for cities all across the United States. Best of all these tournaments are open to all ages and skill levels, so join in for fun and a good cause.
Gus Macker Basketball has spent 42 years traveling across the country to provide communities with fun basketball, healthy competition, and exercise. They do this by providing unique basketball courts designed for young players and 3 on 3 tournaments. These Dream Courts allow for mini-sized basketball fun and even slam dunk competitions. The tournaments aren’t just for kids though, anyone from ages 7 to 70 are invited to play, and there are several trophies awarded. Gus Macker emphasizes that anyone can play regardless of height or experience.
The proceeds from the tournament will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Cape Girardeau. Each city selects a charity to benefit from Gus Macker Basketball, so not only is it fun, but the money goes back into the community.
The Gus Macker Basketball Tournament takes place August 8 and 9 in the A.C. Brase Arena Building. Visit the website for a schedule and registration. If you don’t feel like playing there is plenty of room for spectators to cheer the teams on.
