New York Knicks NBA player Charles Smith will compete at this years Galway Masters Basketball Tournament at the NUIG Kingfisher on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November. The 6’10’’ American from Bridgeport, Connecticut played with the famous New York Knicks in the 80’s and 90’s before injuries ended his professional playing career in 1997. Smith also represented the USA national team twice, once for the 1986 World Games in Spain (he led the team in scoring) where he won a gold medal, and the second at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul winning a bronze medal for his country.

‘We couldn’t believe our luck when Charles contacted us’, said James Hanley, of The Galway Masters Basketball Association. ‘He heard about our tournament while playing in Europe and when he found out that it was run in aid of two local charities, agreed to attend and play for Galway at his own expense!’. Charles Smith is no stranger to charitable work having founded the Charles D. Smith Foundation and Educational Centre in 1989, aimed at keeping inner-city children off the streets and improving their educational prospects.
