NMDT – Invitational
Needham Invitational is one of the oldest, diverse and respected Memorial Day Tournaments in the country for premier and town teams. In our 47th year, we continue to receive club support due to our year-round devotion to developing the ultimate tournament experience for all levels of competition. We pride ourselves on hosting competitive games against teams you typically don’t play throughout the season, as we are NOT a club jamboree, we are a diverse tournament that saw over 90 different clubs in 2023.
