Kingsport: Glow Basketball Tournament

March 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Expanded “Glow” Basketball event returns to Kingsport

The Kingsport Parks and Recreation Department is bringing back its “glow” basketball competition this week, while expanding the event to include an NBA 2K video game tournament.

The event will take place March 11 at the V.O. Dobbins, Sr. Complex (301 Louis Street).

  • Glow Basketball will begin at 7:30 p.m. This free event is open to kids and teenagers ages 5 to 15.
  • The NBA 2K contest will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and be played on an XBOX system. The entry fee is $2 per player and ages 18 and under can enter.

Glow events are when participants wear neon or white clothes, the lights to a gym are turned off and the black lights are turned on. Everyone then “glows” in the dark while running around and playing a game of basketball.

The “glow” basketball event will be a hot shot shooting event where participants will have 60 seconds to score as many points as possible by shooting from different spots on the court – 1 point for a layup, 2 points from the free throw line and 10 points from the 3-point line.

The winner of the basketball event earns bragging rights over the other competitors, while the winner of the NBA 2K contest will receive a “surprise.”

“We’re in the middle of the NBA season and March Madness is about to begin, so what better time to bring back “glow” basketball,” said Kingsport Parks and Recreation Administrator Travis Sensabaugh. “And we’re hoping to get a better turnout by adding NBA 2K to the mix.”
