Valentine's Bash Basketball Tournament Returns to Quad Cities


It's a Valentine's tradition that's all about defense and lay ups, instead of flowers and candy.

The annual Valentine's Bash Basketball Tournament is underway this weekend at Beyond the Baseline in Davenport.

The tournament is for boys and girls in third through eighth grades, and more than 130 teams from Illinois and Iowa will be competing over the next two days.

The tournament is in its seventh year, and organizers say it continues to grow.

It will bring together more than 1,500 kids this year alone.

Organizers say it is not only about promoting team work and healthy living, it is also about bringing the community together.
