OLEAN -- Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball, America's largest outdoor basketball will be held in Olean August 17-19, 2018.  The 3-day event, organized by the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce, is open to players of all ages and experience levels who are computer-matched by age, height and experience so that all participants can be competitive. The event, first held in Lowell, Michigan in 1974, is a family festival with food and music along with the basketball competition.

 

LOCATION -- Courts will be positioned on Delaware Avenue and North Barry Street, with food and retail vendors setting up in the Olean Center Mall/Key Bank parking lot.

DREAM COURT – The Dream Court will return for its eleventh year appearance at the Olean Macker.  The Dream Court is a specially-designed red, white and blue All-American themed court with a synthetic court surface, like the Top Men’s and Women’s Courts.  Color commentators announce games on the Dream Court.  Teams are selected at random to play on the court.
