The world’s largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament will return to South Bend as part of the City’s 150th birthday weekend celebration. The Gus Macker Basketball Tournament, once a popular downtown fixture, will be held May 23-24.

In conjunction with the Downtown South Bend First Friday theme of March Madness, the tournament will offer onsite registration, Gus Macker merchandise giveaways, and a special appearance by the MackerMan mascot, from 5-8pm this Friday, March 6 at the South Bend Chocolate Café.

This year’s tournament will be limited to 250 teams. The entry fee for a four-player team is $150, and if teams register this Friday onsite, they will save the $8 processing fee for online registrations. The mail-in registration deadline is May 1, and the online registration deadline is May 4.
