Review: First Annual KING of the Court

What’s up KING fam?!? We here at KING wanted to give a huge thanks to our sponsors and our teams for coming out to support our programs and mission this past weekend. Our first ever 3 on 3 basketball tournament, KING of the Court, was a huge success. In total, we had 18 teams participate this year and plan to double that next year!

It takes a village to run a successful event and we feel very lucky to have the best village around. A big thanks to Indoor Hoops for signing on as our first major sponsor of our tournament. If you need leagues to play in throughout the city, they are should be your go to! As you all know, the key to a successful event is bomb food… shout out to Panera Bread for providing breakfast and lunch for all our players and volunteers. Thirdly, a big shoutout to Nature’s Bakery for providing 300+ fig bars to help our players charge back up in between games.

We’d also like to thank Yogaworks, Soul Cycle, Essentia Water and GNC for coming out and supporting our event. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Most importantly, we want to thank each and every single player that participated this year. Anytime you take the jump to start something new, it can be nerve-racking and all of you came through in a major way. This tournament represents our dedication to provide Kids growing up in New York City with opportunities to play basketball, go to summer camp and #growupking.

In ten years, when we are running the 2027 KING of the Court tournament, we will always remember this year and where it all began. We cannot wait to see all of you back year after year.
