Obama Launches 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

Today, Barack Obama's New Hampshire campaign announced the creation of "Hoops. Action. Change." This new program is a statewide three-on-three basketball tournament.

Here is the rest of the information you will need to know:

Hoops. Action. Change. is an opportunity for Granite Staters to get involved in their communities, to participate with Obama's campaign to change our country, and to have some summer fun on the basketball court. All participants in the tournament are required to complete a community organizing activity. Participants will be canvassing, phone banking, and hosting house parties across the state.

The top two teams from each region will advance to the finals on Saturday, August 11th in Manchester, with special guest Craig Robinson, Obama's brother-in-law and Head Coach of Brown University's Men's Basketball Team.

The tournament is free and open to the public. Players must be 18 or older.

Players may register their team by calling (603) 433-7001 or by visiting us on the web at
