Globetrotters are Gippsland bound

Star turn: The Harlem Globetrotters are heading to Gippsland.



THE world’s best known basketball team is heading to Gippsland.
The Harlem Globetrotters have locked in a visit to Traralgon as part of their 13-stop Australian Tour in late June-early July.
The Globetrotters will bring their gravity defying, slam dunking and impossible shot-making to the Gippsland Regional Sports Stadium on Thursday, May 7.
The Valley joins the likes of Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Hobart and the Gold Coast on the itinerary.
“We are so excited to bring the Harlem Globetrotters back to Australia for their Spread Game tour,” NBL commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said.
“It’s been three long years since they last toured Australia and we are sure basketball fans from across the nation will come out in droves to enjoy a world class night of family friendly entertainment.”
The Harlem Globetrotters have been entertaining audiences around the world for 96 years, playing more than 26,000 exhibition games in 124 countries.
