LEARN MORE ABOUT THE
RACINE, WI GUS MACKER
Gus Macker Returns to Racine!
For the second consecutive year, the Mack is coming back to Racine, WI. The City of Racine Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services will once again host the Gus Macker 3-on-3 basketball tournament in downtown Racine this summer.
Last year’s event, hosted 87 teams and 348 players, according to Gus Macker metrics, brought an estimated 3,500 spectators over the course of the tournament. The City of Racine PRCS is happy to be able to bring the Macker tournament back.
A Gus Macker Tournament is designed for basketball players who love the fun of the driveway game – male or female, from ages 7-70+, short and tall, the most experienced or those with little or no experience; who just want to play.
This year, 2018, is the 45th year of Gus Macker Basketball. For the first 13 years it was a single tournament started by a pair of brothers and their friends in 1974, but became a festival phenomenon and America’s Original 3-on-3 Basketball Tour in 1987.
Through the years there have been 1,421 sanctioned Gus Macker Tournaments presented for over 670,800 teams or almost 2.7 million players and played in front of over 27.5 million spectators. This year you can be a part of it! Our modern tournaments maintain order in almost all cases with REGISTERED OFFICIALS.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the City of Racine Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services youth programs held throughout the year. The proceeds will allow PRCS to add and upgrade youth programs within its department and five community centers.
The Racine Gus Macker will have plenty to offer with various special events, numerous vendors, a kid’s area, and more. The weekend will also see the Salmon-A-Rama Fishing Tournament take place. Cheer, watch and participate in these events and explore Racine to see what we have to offer.
Player registration will be Friday, July 21st, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, July 22nd, from 7 a.m. to noon at Gateway Technical College, with the courts just a few steps away from a scenic backdrop of Lake Michigan. Players must be registered before their first game.
