The Annual Sporting Exchange with the Wellington Chinese Sport & Cultural Group and Hoop Club Kapiti was held on Sunday 10 August.
This year it was Kapiti's turn to go into Wellington and play the Chinese Group at their home courts.
Players, families, Coaches, Managers, Parents and Supporters all travelled into Wellington for the event.
The day got underway at 10.00am with games for the 5 and 6 year olds, 8 and Unders, 10 and Unders and 12 and Unders and finished around 1.30pm after a shared lunch with our hosts.
Everyone had a great day of basketball and fun. Whilst most of the scores on the day were either even or extremely close, the emphasis of the event was on everyone getting to play, everyone having a great time and a great family atmosphere.
One player in the 8 and Under Team was heard saying "this is the best day of my life."
A day of big smiles all round from players and coaches.
This event is always a fun fixture and the players really look forward to it.
This event is held annually and has been held now for the last seven years, alternating between home and away. Next year we will be hosting the Wellington Chinese group here in Kapiti.
