HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

Margretha Pinkney wants to set a world record and she needs your help.  She is organizing a "knockout" basketball tournament at the Waymer Center in Huntersville Saturday September 15th.

Pinkney lost her 9-year-old son Nikko in a house fire nearly a year ago, but she is determined to keep his memory and spirit alive. The tournament is a fundraiser with a goal of taking 10 children to the upcoming WWE "Smackdown" event in Charlotte.  Nikko was a big fan of wrestling and his mom says "knockout" basketball was his favorite game. 

The registration fee for each player will be $5. They need 600 people to show up to enter the Guinness Book of World Records. Activities start at 9 a.m. Saturday morning.  There is no need to pre-register just show up for your chance to enter the record books. The Waymer Center is located at 14200 Holbrooks Road in Huntersville.
