Belding: “Still Home Hoopin’ After All These Years”

The Belding Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will be played Aug. 3-4 in 2019.

It will be in Belding for the 33rd time and the hometown Macker for the 46th time overall for the national tour that started in a Lowell driveway.

A field of nearly 500 teams is expected after last year’s tournament attracted 479 teams, a record for the home tournament in the modern era. Only Ludington’s popular Macker attracted more teams a year ago.

“Some people might remember a rough and tumble basketball in Belding, but in this era, we have registered officials on all the courts and we have a youth movement,” says Scott McNeal, a.k.a. Gus Macker, owner and co-founder of Gus Macker Basketball.

“We have the third generation of Macker players here, and we remain focused on wholesome family entertainment.”

The Gus Macker phenomenon started in 1974 in the McNeal Lowell driveway, moved to Belding in 1987 as a single event, exploded to almost 5,000 teams for one weekend and then evolved into a national tour.

Familiar faces annually show in Belding, and the tournament is made possible through the efforts of 15 or more local non-profit charity groups involved. Those groups represent school teams, churches, the “B” Foundation (cancer charity), the Miss Belding Scholarship and others. The groups net about $10,000 by being involved, and all are focused on youth in the community.

A gala opening ceremonies, dunk contest, arts and crafts booths and more are being planned. It will be a family fun festival mixed with basketball.

We’re still home hoopin’ after all these years.
