About The Tournament
Patrick's PALS 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is traditionally held on the first Saturday after Memorial Day. 32 teams. Double Elimination. 4 half-courts. Food. Contests. Prizes. Silent Auction. And more...
Patrick's PALS was established in 1997 to bring together friends, family and new friends to play some ball for an important cause. The tournament is the culmination of fund-raising efforts that begin in March with a mailing and continues online. Over 19 years our efforts include raising awareness of Fragile X and the efforts of FRAXA to find a cure, and it's importance in the scientific community as it relates to other mental impairments along the same spectrum, including Autism.
All in all, Patrick's PALS is a great day and a lot of fun! Attendance is free to spectators. A nominal entry fee for players guarantees a great day that goes way beyond just the basketball. PALS XXI is scheduled for June 3, 2017!
