The 21st Annual Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Reno Memorial Day Basketball Tournament took place 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 throughout 35 modular basketball courts.
The events have grown significantly from years past and continue to gain momentum each year.
The AAU is one of the largest non-profit volunteer sports organizations in the United States. A multi-sport organization, the AAU dedicates itself exclusively to the promotion and development of amateur sports and physical fitness programs. Players at the Reno Memorial Day Tournament consisted of over 630 teams of boys and girls, ages eight to seventeen. These players competed in more than 1,350 basketball games during last weekend’s event.
“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, as well as the parents were all very much a part of this excitement. SnapSports was thrilled to have contributed to the energy as well as be a part of what was the largest basketball tournament in the world!” says Dan Wollman, SnapSports Vice President of Sales.
“SnapSports flooring is awesome! The players love it. The bounce they have from jumping, the ball handling… is second to none,” says Matt Williams, AAU President of the Pacific Region and Tournament Director.
