“We’re excited to be hosting a preseason game in the Shoalhaven,” interim general manager Stuart Wilkinson said.
“We have a large base of Hawks members from the area who come and support the team each year, this is our chance to acknowledge this and bring a game to Bomaderry.
“The local association is over the moon that the Hawks are coming to town.
“The region has a strong basketball community, and this will be a fantastic opportunity for this to be recognised with two professional teams going head to head.”
The Shoalhaven pre-season game will be followed up with a school holiday basketball clinic planned for Wednesday, October 2 at the Bomaderry Basketball Stadium.
Wollongong NRE Hawks School Holiday Basketball clinics are designed to give children the opportunity to have fun and learn new skills, whether it is their first time in a basketball stadium or if they are a seasoned player.
