Winston-Salem area McDonald’s, Academy Sports and Outdoors, HOPE Counseling and Consulting Inc., Baker Business Center LLC, Too Hott Customs, Dennis Automotives and the Village Inn Hotel and Event Center have partnered with the Hoop It Up 3-on-3 Basketball Tour, owned by former NBA superstar Kevin Garnett, to bring an exciting, fun-filled, community-based weekend to Winston Salem and surrounding areas on Aug. 13.
The three-on-three basketball tournament will be played at Forsyth Country Day School in Lewisville. Participants and spectators can also enter dunk, 3-point, and free throw contests.

Hoop It Up began in 1989 in Dallas, as a grassroots basketball tournament, and today is widely regarded as the most famous three-on-three basketball tournament in the world.
In 2019, former NBA champion Kevin Garnett’s company Big Ticket Sports purchased the tournament and has since committed to expanding the Hoop It Up tour coast to coast. Hoop It Up offers competition for men and women, boys and girls of all ages and levels of ability.

“We are excited to partner with Kevin, and the entire Hoop It Up staff to bring this amazing event back to the Winston-Salem area,” said Cory Baker, local organizing committee member. “Players and fans alike will love what is sure to be one of the most unique basketball events anywhere in the world.”
