DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) – The inaugural 2021 Turkey Classic will take place at the Dothan Civic Center Monday and Tuesday November 22 and 23.

The bracket is made up of eight teams trying to punch their ticket to the Dothan Hoops Classic at the end of December.

This year’s teams competing in the Turkey Classic are: Florala, Andalusia, Malone, Highland Home, Georgiana, Lafayette, Cottonwood and G.W. Long.

Title sponsors of the Dothan Hoops Classic came up with the idea for a November tournament in which the winner gets a spot in the December tournament.

“We’re hoping that the community really gets behind this and pushes it,” Tournament Director Rhonda Kirk said. “We hope that we have a lot more teams who want to get into the tournament and the field just gets better and better and we could filter teams in and out and everybody gets an opportunity to play at the civic center.”

Tickets to the Turkey Classic are $6 per day or you can buy a two day pass for $10.

On Monday games start at 3:30 p.m.
