When Pat Clarke passed away in 2006, Meteors wanted to keep her memory alive. The Division 1 team at the time was made up of nearly all the same girls that Pat had coached way back in St Mary's Youth club in 1987 so the Club decided it would be a fitting tribute to host an annual pre-season tournament, for Senior teams across the country.
The Pat Clarke tournament has fast become a highlight of the basketball calendar and it sees teams travelling from all four corners of the country to complete.
Sadly for the first time ever in 2020 and 2021 the tournament did not go ahead due to Covid19.
We came back strong in 2022 and had another amazing day restarting the annual tradition.
