On the Fly | Beach Ball and Holiday Hangover on tap

35th Annual Beach Ball Classic

Get your beach balls out, because it's time for the Beach Ball Classic! Sun, sand, sunscreen, beach umbrellas, and of course beach balls! Oh wait, I should have read up a little bit, that's not what this is, OK, let's start over.

Calling all basketball fans, or those of you who wish to get out of the house to avoid those awkward conversations with visiting family members who can't take the hint that Christmas is over, it's time to go home to New York, listen up!

The 35th Annual Beach Ball Classic descends on the beach, kicking off Dec. 26-31 from noon-10 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

Since 1981, over 1 million fans have witnessed the Beach Ball Classic — a holiday tradition for local residents as well as the nation’s top high school players and their families. Past tournaments have featured now famous players including Kobe Bryant, Jason Kidd, Ramon Sessions, Raymond Felton, Ivory Latta, and Air Bud, just to name a few. This year’s lineup promises a glimpse of some of the nation’s top talent in rising juniors and returning seniors who are destined to grace the hardwood of the top colleges and professional ball clubs.
