Boardwalk Basketball Classic

The Boardwalk Basketball Classic Tournament was founded in 1998 and continues to be the largest single-venue coed high school holiday basketball tournament in the United States. This five-day tournament helps to raise college scholarship money for graduating seniors for the two high schools that host the tournament, Wildwood and Wildwood Catholic. The event is made up of brackets named in memory of residents from the area. The 2013 tournament hosted over 70+ different girls’ and boys’ high school basketball teams from New Jersey and other surrounding states. The Boardwalk Basketball Classic is strictly a not-for-profit event and has raised over $275,000 in scholarship money since its inception.
