Summerland will host a three-on-three basketball tournament next month at the outdoor courts at Summerland Middle School.

The tournament will be held Sept. 20 and 21. It is being organized to raise money for a new outdoor basketball facility in Summerland.

Abishek Lekhi, organizer of the tournament, hopes to have between 50 and 100 participants in this year’s event.

Lekhi, a high school basketball player, organized a similar tournament last year to promote the sport and raise money for improvements to the Summerland Secondary School gym.

The event last year drew 30 participants from around the region and raised around $500.

This year, Lekhi hopes to raise twice as much through the tournament.

An early bird registration rate is in place until Sept. 1.

Registrations will close on Sept. 14.

To register, visit stadiumroar.com/summerland3on3basketball. For information, email Lekhi at summerland3on3basketball@hotmail.com or call 778-931-2197.
