The 55th annual Glodzik Tournament is underway through March 14. This popular basketball tournament is considered one of the best tournaments in the state and will feature 36 5/6 grade boy’s and girl’s teams from the area. PEGTV will broadcast many of the games on channel 15.
West Rutland PEGTV, Rutland County’s public access television station, has partnered with the West Rutland Booster Club to sponsor the 55th annual West Rutland Glodzik Basketball Tournament taking place through March 14.
This year’s invitational tournament features 36 teams, both boys and girls, at the 5/6-grade age level.
Twenty-six years ago the tournament was named after the late Ed Glodzik, who was a coach and had a son who played in the tournament. Due to the popularity and caliber of the tournament, girl’s basketball was added for the first time in 2012 with the support of the Glodzik family.
PEGTV has recorded the games from the opening weekend, some games throughout the week, and the championship game live, which takes place Friday, March 14.
These games will be broadcast on PEGTV channel 15 and DVDs of the games will be available for purchase, with the money being donated back to the West Rutland Booster Club to help support next year’s tournament.
The championship game is guaranteed to be a spectacular event.
The West Rutland Booster Club goes all out to make the experience a memorable one for the teams and the spectators, which involves NBA-type introductions, a light show, and giveaways from the Boosters and PEGTV.
“PEGTV is thrilled to be involved with the 55th annual Glodzik Basketball Tournament and we are glad to give this tournament the coverage it deserves to showcase the incredible local talent and the great job the Boosters do every year to make it a memorable experience the kids will never forget,” according to PEGTV Executive Director Michael Valentine
If you are unable to watch the tournament games on cable they will be made available later in the week via PEGTV’s video-on-demand portal located on the website.
PEGTV is comprised of Channels 15, 20 and 21 and is available to all cable subscribers throughout Rutland County. Streaming programming, video on demand services and hyper-local weather forecasts are also available online at www.pegtv.com.
