Tonya Phifer was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. After playing for Victory Christian and UNC-Charlotte where she still holds the points scored and assist records there, Phifer contemplated playing professional basketball, but instead became a business owner. She decided to remain in her community and continue to give back with her time and talents. She has played in recreational leagues in the Charlotte area since her graduation from UNC-Charlotte. Creating this tournament has been a work in progress for several years and now it’s finally happening! “I believe this tournament will provide a social, recreational and athletic outlet to people in this community. We set the admission at $1 or a canned good so that this would remain a community event that everyone could attend.” said Phifer.
