The Brewton YMCA will be hosting the sixth annual Terry "Malt" Walker Basketball Tournament during March.
Play will be broken into four divisions. They include coed (for fourth grade and under), girls (seventh grade and under and 10th grade and under), boys (seventh grade and under and 10th grade and under) and women/men (11th grade and older).
The coed division has a March 4 registration deadline with a $10 entry fee per player. The boys 7th grade and under and 10th grade and under divisions have a March 4 deadline with a $15 entry fee per player.
The girls 7th grade and under and 10th grade and under division has a March 25 registration deadline and a $15 registration fee per player. The men's and women's division has a March 11 registration deadline and a $25 registration fee per player.
Coaches may pick up a registration package at the YMNCA front desk. Player registration must be turned in by a team's coach.

Tournament winners will receive individual trophies. All participants will receive a tournament t-shirt. Refunds will be provided if a division does not have the minimum four teams.
The playing schedule for the coed division has yet to be announced. The boys divisions will be played Macrh 8-13. The girls divisions will be played March 22-27. The women's and men's divisions will be played March 15-20.
