Let The Games Begin!

The PBL Class of 2021 welcomes you to the 8th annual Panther Paws 3 on 3 tournament.


1. Brackets are posted!

2. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your team's first game to get registered and pick up your t-shirts.

3. All players are admitted for free into the tournament. Admission is $1 (or a non-perishable canned food item) for all coaches and spectators.

4. One rule change for 2017. The championship game is no longer a single elimination game. If a team loses the championship game and that is their first loss, the game is played again.

5. Remember - this is a fun-filled tournament. Panther Paws expects all players, coaches, and fans to exhibit good sportsmanship.



For a Great Cause!


Proceeds for the 8th annual tournament will benefit the Class of 2021. In lieu of a $1 admission charge, a non-perishable can of food will be accepted for entry into the tournament. All food will be donated to local food pantries.
