The Rucker Park Tournament, the Drew League, the Venice Beach League, the Seattle Pro-Am, you’ve probably heard about these summer pro-am leagues but have you heard about the Dolphin Basketball Classic? On its 34th edition, the Dolphin gathers Vancouver’s top talent and manages to draw players from other provinces and even from Div 1 schools in the US for a fun two and a half day tournament while engaging with the local community. This is all the result of a group of hard working friends who 30+ years ago decided to start a tournament in their local park and this same group of friends is still the driving force behind the Dolphin Basketball Classic. If you want to hear more about Vancouver’s own summer basketball classic, you don’t want to miss this episode.
