GIRTON Grammar students got some basketball tips from some eminently qualified teachers this week, as the Harlem Globetrotters visited Bendigo ahead of an upcoming tour.
The Globetrotters will host two exhibitions at Bendigo Stadium as part of a tour hosted by the National Basketball League.
Sean “Scooter” Christensen and Corey “Thunder” Law visited Girton to share their incredible skills with students ahead of the shows, the first of which will be held on Saturday, April 13.
Bendigo Stadium CEO Nathan O’Neill said the stadium is thrilled about the opportunity to partner with the NBL to bring the world class entertainment to regional Victoria.
First formed in 1926, the Harlem Globetrotters have become one of the most popular and well-known entertainment brands in the world, performing hundreds of live shows every year.
The Globetrotters’ national tour will cover 10 cities in 10 days, with Bendigo first cab off the rank.
However, the show will be held in the existing stadium precinct, with the new showcourt to make its debut when the Bendigo Braves play Hobart in round one of the South East Australian basketball League season.
