Glow Basketball and NBA 2K Contest

March 11, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Kingsport Parks and Recreation Department is bringing back its “glow” basketball competition this week, while expanding the event to include an NBA 2K video game tournament.

The event will take place March 11 at the V.O. Dobbins, Sr. Complex (301 Louis Street).

Glow Basketball will begin at 7:30 p.m. This free event is open to kids and teenagers ages 5 to 15.
The NBA 2K contest will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and be played on an XBOX system. The entry fee is $2 per player and ages 18 and under can enter.
Glow events are when participants wear neon or white clothes, the lights to a gym are turned off and the black lights are turned on. Everyone then “glows” in the dark while running around and playing a game of basketball.

The “glow” basketball event will be a hot shot shooting event where participants will have 60 seconds to score as many points as possible by shooting from different spots on the court – 1 point for a layup, 2 points from the free throw line and 10 points from the 3-point line.

The winner of the basketball event earns bragging rights over the other competitors, while the winner of the NBA 2K contest will receive a “surprise.”

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
