Spokane Hoopfest sticks to schedule but secures August backup date

Organizers of the Spokane’s Hoopfest hope to hold the event as scheduled on June 27-28. Hooptown USA, the sponsor of Hoopfest, the largest three-on-three basketball tournament in the world, says if that date becomes untenable due to extended shelter-in-place orders, organizers have secured August 22-23 as a backup date. If postponed, registration will remain open until July 13. Organizers modified a no-refund policy so that if Hoopfest 2020 is postponed until August or canceled, teams will be given the option to maintain the registration, request a full refund, or donate the registration fee to support the nonprofit organization. Hooptown says it will make the decision by the end of April. (Spokesman-Review)
