Roehl Round-Ball Classic returns

The third annual Tom Roehl Round-Ball Classic is set for Saturday, Dec. 22. The all-island tournament raises money for the Tom Roehl Memorial Scholarship.

In November, there was the Tom Roehl Turkey Bowl, a five-on-five football tournament that raised $500 for the scholarship fund. The goal with the basketball games is to raise another $1,000.

Organizers of the Roehl Classic thanked Jason Joiner and Windermere Property Management, Schisel Construction, Harada Physical Therapy and DCG engineering, Sherman Farms, Ashley’s Designs and R&R Tree Service.

Team registration can be found at and is open until Dec. 21. Teams are asked for a donation of $125 which can be made online.

Games run from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 22. The length of each game will vary depending on the number of teams that register.

The tentative scheduled is for three, 15-minute games for seeding, then 25-minute games in a single elimination tournament.

Individuals without a team are asked to email
