SKYCITY Breakers vs the Brisbane Bullets

Tauranga will host the SKYCITY Breakers vs the Brisbane Bullets once again this year in what will be the final game of the pre-season schedule. The match will be hosted by the Tauranga based HoopNation organisers and will provide all Bay of Plenty locals with a rare opportunity to see world class basketball in their own world class facility at ASB BayPark Arena.

HoopNation Co-Founders Paul Berridge and KJ Allen are excited to bring the SKYCITY Breakers back to Tauranga and expect a great crowd based on the growing popularity of Basketball in the region. Berridge says ‘We look forward to putting on a fantastic night of family entertainment at a price that families can afford. It’s inspiring for the aspiring young players who live in the region to see their heroes up close and in action and with so much talent in this region, we are sure there will be future Breakers players in the crowd.’

Last year the SKYCITY Breakers played the Bullets in Tauranga and put on a great show to a packed crowd and the team are looking forward to great support once again. SKYCITY Breakers General Manager Dillon Boucher says “It is great to work with the team at HoopNation and bring a preseason game to Tauranga again this season. Tauranga has a great venue and a great basketball following and we want to put on a great show for them by bringing the Brisbane Bullets to town in what will be our final preseason game before our season tips off on Oct 8 “.

About HoopNation

Thank you for visiting us at HoopNation. We have an ambitious game plan to be the biggest basketball event brand across Asia Pacific by 2020 - Like the maxim says, shoot for the stars!

Ability may get you to the top but it takes character to keep you there.

John Wooden

The artistry, the athleticism, the challenge, the drama of what unfolds, the sportsmanship, celebrating victory in humility and defeat with grace is why we love the game and the people who play.

Above all things, HoopNation is a celebration of all things ball and it is this celebration that HoopNation’s philosophy of “letting players play” is fundamental to maximising player access to hit the hard wood. It’s one of those points of difference that we at HoopNation have in being player focused. Our rules and regulations are here to serve our players’ needs and not the other way around.

We’ll make your desire to play happen, in a fair and equitable approach to the game.

It is the players that make HoopNation the great spectacle that it is for players and fans alike. Whether players play for the exhilaration of competing against the best, or for players who play for the social aspects of balling with friends over a jam-packed weekend, HoopNation has everything players need and what fans just love!

If you’re working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. This vision pulls you.
