Nothing But Net: Charity basketball tournament draws hundreds to Canby

Nearly 400 players compete in the 14th-annual event, which supports the local Rotary chapter's philanthropic endeavors.


by: JEFF GOODMAN - Close to 400 players participated in 15 different age brackets during the 14th-annual Nothing But Net charity basketball tournament July 27 at Wait Park in Canby.After watching a few of his fellow Canby High School athletes win a close game, incoming senior and student body president Timmy Johnson stepped on the makeshift court near Wait Park wearing a bright blue track jacket and neon accessories while pumping music out of a boombox.

Clearly, the spirit of the Nothing But Net basketball tournament was alive and well.

The 14th-annual edition of the charity event, which is organized by the Rotary Club of Canby, featured 100 teams and nearly 400 competitors for a sunny and warm day of basketball in 15 separate brackets July 27.

Children as young as 8 years old and adults over 30 spent the day battling through their brackets. Each team was guaranteed at least three games.

Although it fell on the same weekend as the Oregon National Guard Hoopla tournament in Salem, the local basketball event attracted players from Canby and North Marion as well as Hubbard, Molalla, Oregon City, Tualatin, Wilsonville, Portland, Hood River, Sandy and Camas, Wash., among other cities.

During a tournament at which new and repeat champions were crowned, money was raised to support the local Rotary chapter’s philanthropic endeavors.
