GRAND RAPIDS, MI - INDOOR GUS MACKER
Family fun three-on-three basketball in the true Gus Macker fashion with all ages invited and involved is set. This November 11th, you don’t have to just watch basketball – you can play, too.
Macker trophies, Macker excitement and Macker action with registered officials will take place on the shiny hardwood courts at MSA Woodland, 2100 28th Street SE.
MSA Woodland is a former skating facility transformed into an indoor facility that hosts soccer, lacrosse, basketball and more, has four hardwood full courts and other significant space where the Macker half-court three-on-three courts will be set up to host the play.
The format of the typical Macker tournament remains the same with our computer breaking down the competitive divisions using age, height and experience to create brackets of fun. Trophies and medals, just like those awarded at summer tournaments, are awarded for first through third place on each court with the all-important Sportsmanship and Toilet Bowl included.
Over the years Gus Macker has presented over 1,400 tournaments for over 2.6 million players, male and female, from ages 7 to 50-plus. An estimated 27 million spectators have witnessed the community-minded basketball festivals and helped raised countless charitable dollars.
The first Macker was presented in a Lowell, Mich., driveway by brothers Scott and Mitch McNeal on spring break in 1974 with 16 friends making up six, three-player teams. It grew in fun and numbers into a neighborhood festival and eventually a phenomenon launched to national fame by a July 8, 1985 story in Sports Illustrated by Alexander Wolff. In 1987 Gus Macker Basketball expanded from a single tournament to a national tour.
