You saw the TV spots during the NBA Finals, all of the sick teasers online, and now it’s finally here – the Red Bull King of the Rock tour is ready to take over Virginia this Saturday. The best part is, whether you want to play and compete for prizes and a trip to run on Alcatraz Island or if you want to check out some great 1-on-1 basketball, you can be a part of this free event. This is what you need to know:
The Virginia King of the Rock qualifier is being held at Lafayette Playground (3500 Granby Street, Norfolk, VA 23509). Games are slated to start at 10 a.m.
For athletes, there is a cash prize for the winner. The winner and runner up will both get a trip to San Francisco in September to play for the ultimate championship on The Rock. All participants will receive a jersey, an exclusive t-shirt and a limited edition Deuce Brand x Red Bull King of the Rock watch, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
The tournament is FREE to enter, but you just have to be there early to register and to claim your spot in the bracket. It’s a 64-player tournament that is first-come, first-served, so if you want to play, you better be there well before 9 a.m. because spots will be going quickly.
If you’re interested in playing, e-mail us at KOTR@dimemag.com and we can start your application process. Or call our special King of the Rock athlete line at 917.651.5414.
