The Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce will host a three-on-three basketball tournament on Saturday, Aug. 1, behind City Hall.

William Diehl, chamber executive director, said 40 teams had signed up for the tournament July 28.

Diehl said he hopes to have at least 50 by Aug. 1.

Teams will have no more than four players. Players will be between the ages 8 and 17, he said.

Diehl said the idea for the tournament came from members of the American Red Cross in Circleville.

The organization will provide basketball goals for the tournament.

Diehl said "a major portion" of the proceeds will be given to the American Red Cross.

The other portion will go towards professional development opportunities for chamber members, he added.

The west side of Park Street will be closed for the event.
