Grady Hornsby Gym will be hopping Friday night and all day Saturday with the Denham Springs High Alumni Basketball Tournament.

The focus of the event is to create a fun, family-friendly atmosphere where former DSHS students and supporters can have fellowship through a weekend of competitive basketball all in the name of raising money for the basketball programs.

Approximately 64 players will participate and will be split into eight teams. Most players are in their 20’s to late 40’s. Each player paid a $100 entry fee.

Business Sponsorships are available for $200-$250. All net proceeds will be donated to DSHS basketball programs, while concession sales will benefit IspotUp Youth Basketball (all other sales and donations will go directly to DSHS).

The tournament will be played from 7-9 p.m. at Hornsby and the freshman gym and a full day (9 a.m.-9 p.m.) is scheduled for the refurbished home of DSHS basketball on Saturday.

All games will be refereed by LHSAA certified officials and security will be provided. There will be a small entry fee for spectators and a raffle will also be sold on Saturday.
