  • Danny Rumph Classic Basketball Tournament

    Danny Rumph Classic 2020

    Dear Rumph Classic Family, Friends & Fans,

    “Today was set to begin the 15th Annual Rumph Classic. A tradition that we love to bring to the city every year since we started in 2006. For the past couple of months, we have tried our best to bring the annual event to life during these trying times and we kept coming back to two things. First, can we put together an event that would provide all of the elements that make up everything we love about Philadelphia basketball and secondly, can we do it safely? We circled back to the fact that the Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation was built on and continues to be driven by our commitment to the health and safety of our community and all of our participants. In light of this promise, along with the devastating impact of COVID-19 throughout our communities, the 15th Annual Rumph Classic will not take place in its original tournament format this year. We have plans to safely bring the Philadelphia basketball community together while following CDC guidelines and protocols within the coming weeks and look forward to sharing details soon.”
