Keep Nyewente on the Court

Our Sport

Added by Silvia Storchi

Description The Nyewente Basketball Club is a successful community initiative of the Trucking yards Town Camp just outside Alice Springs. In August 2016, Charity Bounce visited the Nywente Community delivering an Eat Strong, Play Strong program with celebrity Chef Sean Connolly and NBL legend Cal Bruton who delivered his Stand Tall basketball clinic. Sean said “I loved interacting with everyone from the community and hearing the personal stories about their culture and the real challenges that exist for the Aboriginal people. I was the one that got inspired".
It is well proven that sport has the ability to positively unite communities towards a positive future through team building, a sense of belonging and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. The Nywenete Basketball Club has been able to transform the community and provides the children and young people with a sense of pride in their community, winning a few championships already since they started.
