This tournament was started in 2002 to celebrate the life of a beloved local educator, friend, and family member Joyce E. King. It has been embraced by the community as a safe and enjoyable summer event for area ball players of all ages to enjoy.

Last year, we were able to accommodate over 35 teams and 400+ players (mostly children between the ages of 10-17) over our event filled weekend.

Our competitive play has attracted numerous local teams as well as many out town teams coming from places such as New York City, Boston, and Connecticut. Any support will help us to keep this fun filled community event going for another year.

Check out the Joyce E. King basketball tournament this weekend at the Albany New Courts.
