The first McDonald’s® Community Basketball Day will be held on Saturday 10 April 2010 and offer the local community an opportunity to take part in clinics and games run by the Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras. All junior domestic clubs will take part in the day with new players able to sign up for teams, register for Aussie Hoops and have heaps of fun.

It is envisaged the Open Day will take on a carnival type atmosphere with other free activities, prizes and giveaways.

Kilsyth Basketball General Manager Grant Wallace complemented McDonald’s® Bayswater North on their community minded approach and spoke of the positive impact the Open Days will create.

“The McDonald’s® Community Basketball Day with the support of McDonald’s® Bayswater North allows Kilsyth Basketball to showcase itself to the wider community.”

“Kilsyth Basketball is a proud member of the local community and being able to partner like minded organisations means events such as the McDonald’s® Community Basketball Day can be held.”

McDonald’s® Bayswater North is a proud supporter of the local community and are excited about partnering Kilsyth Basketball.

We, as an organisation, are committed to promoting and encouraging active and balanced lifestyles by engaging in grassroots sporting activities.
