Adelaide 36ers 2015 Top End Invitational


Blockbuster Games Bounce Into Top End!

Basketball NT is very pleased to announce the return of professional basketball to the Top End with blockbuster games featuring the Adelaide 36ers in the second week of September. The 2015 Top End Invitational will see the 36ers back in the Top End as the “home team” to play Rain or Shine from the Phillipines and the Townsville Crocodiles in their preseason after last year’s 3 sell-out games against the Crocodiles and the Japanese National Team.

The Adelaide 36ers are shaping up for a big 2015/2016 season with an athletic team being assembled, including new import Kenyon McNeail, a past star at Louisianna Tech in the US.

The Townsville Crocodiles will be back this year but this time will also play the 36ers at Palmerston Recreation Centre to provide fans in the Palmerston and rural area with the opportunity to watch top flight NBL competition live on their doorstep.
Game details for the 2015 Top End Invitational are as follows:

Game 1: 36ers v Rain or Shine, 5.00pm Sunday Sept 6 (Palmerston Recreation Centre)
Game 2: 36ers v Townsville Crocodiles, 7.30 pm Wed Sept 9 (Marrara Indoor Stadium)
Game 3: 36ers v Townsville Crocodiles, 7.30 pm Thurs Sept 10 (Palmerston Recreation Centre)

The games will again be complimented by a 36ers community camp in the Palmerston and rural area backed by the City of Palmerston involving visits to local schools, Aussie Hoops centres and community programs to support grass roots basketball development.

The Aussie Hoops program for 5 to 10 year olds, and its expansion to 10 centres across Darwin, Palmerston and the rural area, as well as in other areas of the NT, will again be showcased with activities involving participants at half time of each game.

The 2015 Top End Invitational is presented by the City of Palmerston in association with the NT Government, Southern Cross TV, Rydges Palmerston, Hidden Valley Ford and Airnorth.
