Hornell NY will be celebrating their 20th year anniversary of this annual event. The Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament is designed so that anyone can play: male or female, young and old, short and tall, the most experienced or no experience at all. This maintains the purity and integrity of the driveway game. The population of Hornell doubles during Macker weekend, as over 300 teams and thousands of spectators take over downtown Hornell. There are many food vendors that help make this a very festive atmosphere. The local hotels are all full for the weekend and the local restaurants and shops are all very busy as well. Participants come from near and far to play or just watch this great event.
Since 1987, the Macker tour has expanded, holding a total of 972 tournaments with over 2.2 million players – male and female from 7 years old to 50+ - and more than 23 million spectators.
