More Information

In the heart of the city at Ernest Oppenheimer Park, Hoop Mania started out in 2013 as Johannesburg's only monthly 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament. Hoop Mania operated monthly in 2013 and 2014. The court surface deteriorated in 2015 and formal tournaments were not possible in such a state. The City of Johannesburg funded resurfacing in 2019 via the Johannesburg Development Agency. Boundless City and Sticky Situations oversaw the project.

As of November, 2019, Hoop Mania basketball tournaments are back!
