Haris Memorial Tournament

Haris CharalambousHaris Charalambous Memorial Basketball Tournament


The Haris Memorial Tournament takes place at the end of the year and is held to remember Haris Charalambous, one of the top players to come out of the Magic programme.
Haris died suddenly while training with his NCAA Division 1 Toledo University team in October 2006.
He showed all the qualities we desire in a Manchester player, both on and off the floor
His mother, Polly, and his sister, Elena, always attend the tournament to watch the action and present the trophies. Sadly, his father, Kypros, also died in July 2010.
The club would like to thank Manchester City Council for their support in hosting this amazing event, which regularly attracts teams from around the world.
