For the eighth consecutive year, the world famous Harlem Globetrotters will give families even more reasons to visit the Jersey Shore when they bring four games and four clinics to the Wildwoods Convention Center from Wednesday, Aug. 15 through Saturday, Aug. 18 – with games nightly at 7 p.m. and clinics daily at 10 a.m.
The Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind games will showcase “Amazing Feats of Basketball” on the court, as the team battles their longtime foe the Washington Generals. With incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction, this must-see event is guaranteed to entertain the whole family. After the game, the Globetrotters will sign autographs and take photos with fans.
Globetrotters star Bull Bullard demonstrated his skills off the court in Wildwood by performing trick basket shots from the Sky Coaster at Morey’s Piers in 2016 (YouTube) and a 210-foot shot from a helicopter flying avove into to a hoop on the Wildwoods’ beach (YouTube). Both unprecedented feats put the Wildwoods in the national spotlight with the videos going viral and garnering media attention around the world. Bull will soon look to outdo himself in 2018 with planned trick shots on and off the court.
The Globetrotters are also offering two-hour Basketball Skills Clinics on the Wildwoods Convention Center court on each game day – Aug. 15 through 18 – from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Globetrotter stars lead each clinic, which is designed for fans ages 6-12. A spot in the clinic costs $39, or choose to upgrade to the $49 package that includes a voucher for one complementary ticket to any one of the four games in Wildwood. No basketball experience is required. Space is limited.
