YOU'RE INVITED

On behalf of ASIANHOOPS.COM, we would like to invite your team to participate in the 2017 ASIANHOOPS.COM Tip-Off Classic to be held on the weekend of November 4-5 at Sportika Sports in Manalapan, New Jersey, the most talked about basketball facility (7 courts) in New Jersey.

This tournament looks to bring Asian basketball teams from the East Coast together for basketball, friendships and fun.

ASIAN BASKETBALL HISTORY
In the 1980's, 90's and early 2000's, two-day weekend basketball tournaments were the norm. Events were held at universities such as Cornell, Syracuse, RPI, Albany, Stony Brook, St. Johns, Rutgers, Drexel, Temple, LaSalle, Columbia, UPENN, UMASS, Boston U., George Mason, University of Maryland, just to name a few. Hosted by Asian students and their college clubs, these events were highly anticipated and extremely well attended by players, friends, and families. The chance to travel outside of the local community was something special.

The TIP-OFF CLASSIC will look to feature seven (7) divisions of play on three (3) courts: Boys 9u, 11u, Boys 13u, Boys 15u and Boys 18u. Other divisions include: Men's Friendship, and Womens. Each team is guaranteed to play in at least three (3) games with those advancing to the playoff/championship round playing in 4-5 games.

Teams interested in playing should contact me asap via email: rockits@asianhoops.com to inform me of your team's intentions of participating as only a limited number of spots are available in each division. You can also contact me at 917-687-5876 (DENNY LEE - tournament organizer) for confirmation or questions.
