“We have heard that there is a misunderstanding that Macker is not happening this year, and we want to make sure people know, Macker is back,” said Brandy Miller, president and CEO of the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the event. “It’s not too late to register, so sign up quickly to be part of the fun.”

In 2019, the Ludington tournament resulted in over $27,500 in donations back to the community. The Family Resource Center and high school athletic departments were among the recipients.  

A slam-dunk contest, music, Gus Macker merchandise and trophies will be part of the fun on tournament grounds during Father’s Day weekend.

Gus Macker tournaments are designed for basketball players who love the fun of the driveway game – male or female, from age 7 to 70-plus, short and tall, the most experienced or those with little or no experience who just want to play. Gus Macker holds 40 tournaments across the U.S. each year, and historically, Ludington has been the largest in the nation.
