Inaugural Tournament of Stars March 31st-April 1st, 2017 in Toronto
Think you can play with the pros? Then register a team and join in the fun at the inaugural Tournament of Stars, an exciting two-day basketball event in support of the life-changing work done every day at West Park Healthcare Centre.
The Tournament of Stars will team NBA alumni – including Ron Harper, Charles Oakley, Jerome Williams, Byron Scott and Muggsy Bogues – celebrities and other Canadian athletes with hoop-loving West Park supporters for an exclusive, fun and exciting round robin tournament.
Basketball enthusiasts can qualify for the Tournament of Stars by raising a minimum of $10,000 per 3-on-3 team (maximum 4 players + one coach for the benefit of fundraising), or $25,000 per 5-on-5 team (maximum 7 players + one coach for the benefit of fundraising). The weekend will include a Celebrity Draft Party on Friday evening, where each team will draft a celebrity player and have a chance to size up the competition before hitting the courts the following day.
The tournament is being held on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at The Goldring Centre for High Performance Sports at the University of Toronto. Each team will play a minimum of three games, and the day also includes a 3-point competition and an All-Star Game between the top fundraising team – joined by top individual fundraisers – and the Celebrity All-Star team!
The Tournament of Stars will be a family-friendly, fun-filled day of basketball with great food, lounge areas for teams to socialize and opportunities to meet and greet with the celebrities and get photos and autographs.
