The tradition continues, as Canada’s longest-running summer outdoor basketball event returns to Richmond this weekend.
The 33rd annual Dolphin Basketball Classic kicks off on Friday, as the three-day tournament promises to be another great event at the South Arm Community Centre.
“It’s a reunion wrapped around a basketball tournament,” says tournament co-founder Bruce Watson.
With a beer garden, food vendors, a DJ, this free-to-attend event is great for spectators.
Competitive men’s and women’s divisions involve many current and former university and college players from the CIS, PacWest, and NCAA. The games are four-on-four, on a slightly smaller than regulation outdoor court.
The weekend also includes slam dunk and three-point contests, with cash prizes to be won.
Here’s a rundown of the weekend’s activities:
When: July 13-15
Where: South Arm Community Centre, 8880 Williams Road, Richmond
