Pure Macker Fun Returns for another year in Quincy!
Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball takes to the streets around Washington Park Central Square for the 27th year May 27th-28th.
Quincy loves its basketball and features one of the longest running Macker tournaments in the country to welcome summer. In addition, the organizing Quincy Exchange Club, which organizes like no other, will once again present net proceeds to community charities. The Quincy Macker is an event that keeps on giving.
If you haven’t been to Quincy before, then you have missed the purity of a Macker that truly takes it to the streets. Washington Park (put 400 Maine Street in your GPS application) will host vendors and concessions, and the courts will branch out from there starting with the top men’s and women’s courts as well as the Dream Court where the mighty mite Mackers live the basketball dream.
The Exchange Club and several other key people in the community have contributed to the success of the Macker for all these years. In fact, one of the founders of the tournament, Mike Lavery of the Exchange Club, is a member of the Gus Macker Hall of Fame.
Come join us for a classic Macker, with registered officials on each court. Officials make for more fairness in play and a calmer family-friendly atmosphere. The guys in stripes will be back and Quincy wants to welcome everybody in the family. Remember Macker tournaments are designed to include the whole family because you play against competition of similar age, size and experience through the unique bracketing system.
