After a season that started with the Maroon and Grey ranked No. 1 in Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s top-ten, and ended on the floor at the Ontario University Athletics Critelli Cup Final-Four in Ottawa, the McMaster women’s basketball program is holding, what it hopes, will be an annual event to celebrate the achievements of the team and strengthen its foundation moving forward to win a national championship.

Enjoy socializing over food, drink, and live music in the heart of downtown Hamilton with players, coaches, and staff from the women’s team, women’s basketball alumni and Marauders supporters.

The evening will feature raffle prizes, games, MAC swag and door prizes with all proceeds supporting the women’s team.

Registration and ticket orders

The event takes place at the Spice Factory, 121 Hughson Street North. Tickets are $50 and event sponsorship is available for $150.
