Hooplandia - June 23-25, 2023
MORE THAN JUST A TOURNAMENT
Taking place at Eastern States Exposition, home of The Big E with some satellite games at Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame over three jam-packed days. Hooplandia is taking place in West Springfield, Mass. June 23 - 25, 2023.
Thousands of players, hundreds of games on 70+ courts. This epic, family friendly weekend tournament celebrates the thrill of competition across a wide range of divisions. Played over two days, 3-on-3 brackets will be set by height and experience for girls, boys, women, men, wheelchair, Special Olympics and Wounded Warrior.
Beyond the courts, the Fan Zones will include interactive attractions, cool zones, food, music, shops, and more. The fun doesn't stop there, with slam dunk, three-point, free throw, and dribble competitions all included in the weekend's jam-packed schedule.
The birthplace of basketball plays host to a campus of hoops on The Big E Fairgrounds, with showcase courts, legends and special places. Featured games will also take place at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's Court of Dreams.
Hooplandia will shine a bright light on the Springfield area, for its legacy and impact in this global sport, drawing players and fans from throughout the Northeast and beyond. From hotel and attraction visitation, restaurant business and event operations, officials expect that the first-year event could mean a $4 million economic boost to the area, according to Mary Kay Wydra, President of the Greater Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau. Great news for the economy and community vitality.
It's all happening June 23 - 25, 2023. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for updates and ticket information. See you at #Hooplandia.
