3v3 Basketball Tournament

Teams will be scheduled for a minimum of two games, and play begins at 8:30 a.m. Games last approximately 15 minutes on a running clock. A single-elimination tournament follows one seeding game for each team. Registration ends at 5 pm on Thursday, June 9. Register your team here. 

Pickleball Clinics

There will also be two free pickleball clinics at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.; no registration is required. Come try the sport that’s sweeping the nation!

Dog Park Dash

Dog owners are encouraged to bring their best friends to the event for special treats and activities, including a doggy “flash mob” that will be used in a social media campaign to win $25,000 for a dog park at McFee Park. Through Dog Park Dash (dogparkdash.com), the Boyd Foundation is giving away grants to communities that demonstrate their desire for a dog park through social media. To get involved, follow Town of Farragut on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Share pics of your favorite pooch with the hashtag #DogParkDash2022 and mention Farragut. With the community’s help, we’ll be one step closer to a dog park at McFee Park.
