SPOKANE-- It's no surprise what states have the most players here at Hoopfest but you might be surprised by which parts of Spokane have the largest number of players in the tournament.
Spokane Hoopfest is taking over downtown this weekend with hundreds of thousands of fans and more players than ever. This year organizers are expecting nearly 28,000 people to be on different teams. They'll come from 44 different states as well as Alberta and British Columbia in Canada.
It’s likely not much of a surprise which states make the top ten: Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and California.
The bottom five: Arizona, Nevada, British Columbia, Alberta, and Utah.
Top area zip codes: Northwest Spokane County, Spokane's South Hill and The City of Spokane Valley.
While the vast majorities are local, players and fans do come from across the country to enjoy Hoopfest. Players come from as far as Connecticut and Alabama.
