An enjoyable time for everyone

There was a enjoyable family atmosphere and everyone had a great day of basketball and fun. Whilst most of the scores on the day were either even or extremely close, the emphasis of the event was on everyone getting to playand having a great time.

One player in the 8 & Under Team was heard saying this is the best day of my life. It was a day of big smiles all roundfrom players and coaches.

A regular fun event

This event is always a fun fixture and the players really look forward to it.It’s held annually and has been going now for the last 7 years, alternating between home and away.

Next year we will be hosting the Wellington Chinese group here in Kapiti.
