The Boardwalk Basketball Classic is a 6-day tournament held to raise college scholarship money for graduating seniors for the two high schools that host the tournament, Wildwood and Wildwood Catholic. The Boardwalk Basketball Classic is the largest coed high school basketball tournament in the country. Since its inception in 1998, the Boardwalk Basketball Classic has raised over $295,000 in scholarship money.
The Boardwalk Basketball Classic is strictly a not-for-profit event. All those involved with the planning, organizing and execution of the tournament are volunteers who donate their time to this worthy cause. The committee works year-round on this project.
The event is made up of brackets named in memory of residents from the area. The 2014 tournament hosted over 70+ different girls’ and boys’ high school basketball teams from New Jersey and other surrounding states.
The tournament is held at the beautiful Wildwoods Convention Center from December 26 through December 31.
