Ludington Gus Macker - Elite Event!
The largest Gus Macker tournament in the nation will be held June 20-21 at Ludington’s Stearns Park.
Promoters refer to Ludington as an elite event, which attracts hundreds of teams each year. Last year saw 757 teams competing on 48 courts lining Lakeshore Drive and Stearns Outer Drive. Presented by Meijer Corporation, the two-day event is organized by the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce and a local committee of volunteers.
Gus Macker in Ludington is a charity event, benefiting Mason County sports and service clubs, and organizers are hoping to make valuable donations again this year. In 2019, the Ludington tournament resulted in over $27,500 in donations back to the community. The Family Resource Center and school athletic departments were among the recipients.
Gus Macker tournaments are designed for basketball players who love the fun of the driveway game – male or female, from age 7 to 70-plus, short and tall, the most experienced or those with little or no experience who just want to play.
