Golden Hoop Central – 2018: Our 18th Year!

Welcome to our 18th year at Golden Hoop Central. We started in 2000 as a 4-person family event and have grown to 100 family and friend entries each year! Golden Hoop Central (Golden Hoops) is a “family and friends” basketball pool that requires an entry code. If you are “family and friends” and do not have the code, please Contact Us. Be sure to read the Rules Section! See you soon!

Special thanks to Pat and Daniela Speer for personally underwriting pool costs and prizes for this year!


Congratulations to our winners! Main Pool: ByeByeThad and SW16 Pool: Tim1990! We will see you next year online here, at Facebook, and on Twitter for the best Hoop Madness updates from Golden Hoop Central!
