We are excited to announce the return of the Bhakta Classic. Our basketball tournament is open to all players of South Asian descent (Indian, Pakistani, Bengali, Sri Lankan, and Nepali origin ONLY).

The tourney will be held on the weekend of October 30-31 at Inspire Courts
. This state of the art facility features seven basketball courts and is located in Gilbert, AZ - about 15 minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX).

We will be running two divisions. The "Elite Division" will be comprised of squads that compete at a more advanced level. Teams participating in this division will battle it out for a cash prize. The "Rec Division" will be for teams wanting to play at a more intermediate/recreational level. Winners of this division will be awarded with trophies.

Each team will play three preliminary round games on Saturday to determine seeding for the playoffs. Seeding will be based on W-L record and point differential.
Playoff games will run on Sunday, and will be single elimination knockout play. Every team will be guaranteed a minimum of four games and a spot in the playoffs.

All individuals who take part in this year's event will receive a free customized jersey, fitted by our sponsors, as well as other goodies. If you are interested in entering, please fill out the registration form found on the Docs section of this website, and send in along with your entry fee. Please Note: we have limited availability, and only paid entries will be guaranteed a spot into the event.

Please feel free to reach out to us directly with any questions.
