The 21st Annual Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Reno Memorial Day Basketball Tournament was held at the Reno/Sparks Convention Center on May 29th-31st. Players competed on the multi-patented SnapSports Indoor BounceBack® surface and the superior Indoor BounceBack ShockTower® surface. SnapSports provided 35 courts for the event, 10 more than was needed last year.
The AAU is one of the largest non-profit volunteer sports organizations in the United States. A multi-sport organization, the AAU is dedicated exclusively to the promotion and development of amateur sports and physical fitness programs. Over 630 teams of boys and girls, ages eight to seventeen, competed in more than 1,350 basketball games during last weekend’s tournament.
“I could not believe the overwhelming energy and the high spirited atmosphere of the event this year. It was evident that every player, every coach, and even the parents were all very much a part of what was the largest basketball tournament in the world!” says Dan Wollman, SnapSports Vice President of Sales
