PBC Sports Commission To Host Inaugural Holiday Basketball Classic

The Palm Beach County Sports Commission has announced the creation of the inaugural Holiday Basketball Classic of the Palm Beaches, which is slated to take place Dec. 28-30.

This event, owned by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission, is poised to become an annual tradition and a signature sports event for Palm Beach County. The Holiday Basketball Classic will be a national high school invitational tournament, and participating teams are selected from across the nation.

The Holiday Basketball Classic will feature 32 teams, comprised of 16 boys teams and 16 girls teams, competing in a single elimination game format. Consolation games will be included, providing each team a minimum of three games.

The Holiday Basketball Classic of the Palm Beaches will be a countywide event taking place at the Oxbridge Academy, Olympic Heights High School, William T. Dwyer High School and Palm Beach Gardens High School.

High School teams from New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland, Texas, Georgia and Florida have accepted invitations. Teams from more states will follow.

“To see a vision come to reality is truly amazing. Without the help of the local basketball community and the host schools, as well as their coaches, this event could not have come to fruition,” event chair Jeff Zipper said.
