Event Description: 16 team, knock-out style 3 vs 3 basketball tournament. Team size can be between 3-5 players to sub people in and out. Play until you lose. Multiple courts and bleachers are in the facilities. This is a fun event for charitable purposes, so all skill levels, members, guests, and genders welcome. Spectators are encouraged.

The Facility: The Major Owens Center, formerly the Bedford Union Armory, occupies nearly an entire city block in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, covering +/-3 acres of land. Opened in 1908, the Armory was used by the US Army’s Cavalry Troop C for training and equipment storage, in addition to serving as a horse stable. When not being used for military purposes, the large, open space provided an excellent venue for sporting events and local community gatherings. Sometime after 2008, Congressman Owens, then a professor at nearby Medgar Evers college, began to envision a future for the Armory as a full-time community center with recreational opportunities and gathering spaces for Crown Heights. Along with his students and other stakeholders, he built local support for the idea. The military decommissioned the building in 2013, and the City of New York took ownership of the site. The 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility opened its doors in October, 2021.

Please RSVP to with the names and email addresses for more information.
