Our Premier basketball team received a delightful boost ahead of the ISF World Schools Basketball Championship when the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters entertained and wowed the young team in Westlake Girls Gym 3 on Thursday, 9 May. The dynamic American players engaged the students in various activities, entertaining and challenging the school’s best players.

The Harlem Globetrotters are known for their exhibition-style games, which are filled with athleticism, theatre, and comedy. They have entertained crowds since 1926 and have played over 26,000 exhibition games in more than 120 countries over 98 years.

Escorted by the NBL, the Harlem Globetrotters are promoting their July Down-Under Tour in New Zealand, courtesy of Precise Homes, which is also a valuable supporter of the school’s basketball campaign to the Worlds in June.  

Auckland will be treated to the brilliance of the Harlem Globetrotters at the Eventfinda Stadium on 14 July, and the Premier basketball team will be back in NZ in time to see them again.
