🏀 Crystal Palace National Sports Centre is the place to be for the 2022 Hoopsfix All-Star Classic, the UK’s premier showcase of youth basketball talent. Tickets are on sale here.
The waiting is over as the Hoopsfix All-Star Classic, with fans, returns for the first time since 2019.
Supported by Foot Locker, Molten, Sportserve Ltd, 5or6 and Always Ballin’, the event features an Under-19 women’s game at 1.30pm followed by an Under-19 men’s game at 4pm, with both games seeing a mixture of Class of 2022 and Underclassmen suiting up. Full team rosters can be viewed via the link below. Players will also battle it out in a three-point shootout at 1pm and a dunk contest at 3.30pm.
“It’s great to be able to welcome fans back again in a new venue with double the capacity we previously had,” founder of Hoopsfix, Sam Neter said.
“We’re looking forward to once again assembling the best under-19s the UK has produced to battle it out across the two games and hope to see you there on the day!”
The ultimate showcase of British basketball talent and culture, there have been very few events over the past decade that have featured so much young British talent in one place for people to see.
With the proceeds from the weekend going to the Hoopsfix Foundation, a not-for-profit that helps fund the Classic (see below for more info on the foundation) with the sole purpose of growing and raising the profile of the game, not only will you be seeing some of the best players this country has produced, but be giving back to the game in the process.
In addition to the action on the court the day will also feature countless giveaways and competitions, music and crowd involvement games.
A sell-out in advance is likely based on previous years, so our best advice is book early.
