The Chris Ford Memorial Basketball Tournament, which will include a kickoff cocktail party June 9, will be held in the club’s newly renovated Evolution Arena in its MGM Teen Center at 317 N. Pennsylvania Ave. Adult teams of local sponsors, businesses and organizations will compete in an elimination-style bracket, with the champions receiving the Club Cup. The club plans to make the tournament an annual event, and the team name of the champions will be engraved on the cup.
