A couple years back we let you know of MoCo resident Jonathan Mensah, who created the All In Summer Tour– a platform that allows some of the best basketball players in our area to go head to head while crowds watch the games in person or through Instagram. Now, he has brought together Seneca Valley legend Bruce Massey Jr. And a Prince George’s County’s Kevin Kuteyi aka “Uncle Skoob” for a 2v2 tour event that will take place at Paint Branch High School on Saturday, September 2 from 2pm-7pm.
Mensah tells us he wanted to bring his tour back to its roots with 2v2 basketball, moving away from the 1v1 games for now. He is opening things up to all area basketball players who simply have to comment or send a DM in order to be invited to play (@all_in_summer_tour). Saturday’all event is free for the community.
Mensah grew up in Gaithersburg and later attended Richard Montgomery High School (class of 2010) and Montgomery College, where he also played basketball. He created the “All In Summer Tour” so that players from across the DMV (men and women) can come and compete at a high level in one on one games that previously took place at Dogwood Park on Monroe Street in Rockville. According to Mensah, some of the biggest names to participate include Bruce Massey, Maurice Creek, Kevin Dorsey, Phoenix Butler-Pool, Daniel Alexander, Donald Robinson, and Collin Turner among others.
Mensah credits his love for basketball and wanting to give back to the community for creating the tour. “My ultimate goal is to motivate the youth and bring positively to the community.” Mensah told us. You can attend the free event at Paint Branch High School on Saturday, September 2nd from 2pm-7pm or you can watch the games on Instagram @All_in_summer_tour
