Macker in May means summer starts in Quincy

Gus Macker basketball takes to the streets around Washington Park Central Square for the 24th year May 24-25, which will mean summer has arrived.

And once again the family oriented festival of fun celebrates the passion for basketball in this wonderful community. Quincy loves hoops.

Remember, the organizing Quincy Exchange Club, which organizes like no other, presents net proceeds to community charities. Hoops returns the love to Quincy. See how it all works?
If you haven't been to Quincy before, then you have missed the purity of a Macker that truly takes it to the streets. Washington Park (put 400 Main Street in youor GPS application) will host vendors and concessions, and the courts will branch out from there starting with the top men's and women's courts as well as the Dream Court where the mighty mite Mackers live the basketball dream.

Steve Green of the Exchange Club has had four sons play in Quincy over the years, and he promises the same wonderful experience that his family has enjoyed multiple times.

The Exchange Club and several key people in the community have insure the success of the Macker or all these years. In fact, one of the founders of the tournament, Mike Lavery of the Exchange Club, was named to the Gus Macker Hall of Fame at the celebration of Macker's 40th birthday last summer.
See, Macker loves Quincy, too. Come join us.
