Tournament NewsWest Coast Classic March 2023 Las Vegas

December 10, 2022by Mark



The NGBA Community, 

             The 2023 East/West Coast Regional Tournament is upon us. The NGBA organizing committee have been working tirelessly looking for several venues throughout the regions to make this tournament a huge success for all.  Unfortunately, the committee was not able to secure a gym for the east coast regional to be held. 

The NGBA board immediately sprang into action and was able to locate a venue to host up to 24 teams. 

The 2023 National Gay Basketball Association will host March Mayhem (West Coast Classic) in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The West Coast Classic (WCC) will be played March 4-5, 2023.  The WCC will be played at the Tarkanian Basketball Academy. 

I want to thank the membership for patiently waiting on this announcement.  Your phone calls, emails, text messages, social media posts were heard.  We are profoundly grateful to the members that took the time to send information on venues and to conduct site visits for possible host locations. 

The NGBA is currently working with the Palace Station Hotel (located next to the gym) to provide tournament participants a favorable rate. More information will be released once we receive the final contract.  

Registration for this event will open on 12-09-2022 at 0800 (PST).  Please ensure you are following our social media for the updated registration link. 

Again, thanks for your patience and see you all in Las Vegas


Best Regards, 

Commissioner Darius Binion
