The first annual Old Port Hoopla Tournament will be held tomorrow at the Ocean Gateway Queing Lanes between 9 am – 5 pm. Registration is now closed. The event is sponsored by Patrick Hackleman, of Casco Bay Sports, Portland.

“It’s 3 v 3,” said Hackleman this afternoon as he took a short break from preparations to talk about his newest project. There are mens, womens, high school and middle school teams registered – twenty-five teams in all ready to go tomorrow morning. Each game will last 25 minutes. Most of the activity will be in the morning Hackleman said. “This is a very active community with a lot of young people here. A great place for such an event,” he said.

Trophies will be awarded between 3 pm – 4 pm under the highly visible yellow and white striped canopy next to Ocean Gateway along Commercial Street.

Sponsors of the event are Orthopedic Associates and Coca-Cola.
