Superhoops and Slamdunkers - The Harlem Globetrotters Lay-up Six June 2010 UK Dates
Basketball is one of the world's most watched sports and has been a team sport for over a century. It almost certainly originated in the States, so it is no surprise their teams are pretty good at it, be it the Lakers, the Spurs, the Suns or the Jazz. But the most famous and successful team to walk the Earth (quite literally these days) is the Harlem Grobetrotters, a name synonymous with global sport not just basketball.
Get this for a win-rate - over a period of 38 years (early 60s to late 90s), they lost just TWICE in 12,000+ games, playing around 250 games a season on average. Now THAT is a winning-streak, ladies and gentlemen. With such an enviable record in sport, you could be forgiven for being a bit jealous and even more curious as to how they do it, time and time again. Now you have a chance to do just that.
Harlem Globetrotters will embark on an exhibition tour of the UK during June of this year during which you will witness the skills, the shots and the sheer size of some of the players involved in the greatest BBall team ever. The tour (part of a 'globetrotting' stint) starts in Belfast on the 4th June and continues to Birmingham (5th), Cardiff (6th), Wembley (7th), Newcastle (8th) and finally Sheffield (9th). Tickets are on sale now priced from around £20 up to £45 (depending on location).
Expect to see a team having fun as well as they play tricks and set-pieces with the audience, as well as the inevitable appearance of team mascot, Globie. With team member names such as Airport Greenup, Bam Bam Bamiro, Dizzy Grant and Big Easy Lofton (6ft 9in tall), it'll be memorable for many reasons as well as the game.
