Sydney Kings & Basketball NSW Partnership Announcement

Click here to read announcement.

This new partnership was exhibited on September 1st, when the Kings hosted more than 40 children – from all across NSW’s Sydney associations – at Qudos Bank Arena, conducting shooting, passing and dribbling clinics.

The night was a massive success, and included some incredible feats of athleticism as new import Michael Bryson jumped over multiple children and dunked the ball home in style, which can be seen in a video produced from the night.

That video can be seen here and will be available to share on the Sydney Kings Facebook page and at

The Sydney Kings open their NBL season against the Brisbane Bullets at 5pm on October 8th, at Qudos Bank Arena.
