From the time I was a child, I was fascinated by the Harlem Globetrotters. Their talent and high energy was so appealing to me and even before I fully understood the game of basketball, I wanted to see them in action. I never did get to see a game in my youth but luckily for me, I recently got the chance not just to take my boys to a Harlem Globetrotters game, but also to take part in a “meet and greet” photo session with one of the players!
The PTPA Award-Winning Harlem Globetrotters are fan favourites with good reason. I knew from watching clips of their performances that I could expect to see some hilarious antics and some truly amazing basketball moves. What I didn’t realize until going to my first game was just how much the Harlem Globetrotters genuinely love performing and interacting with kids. From the minute the announcer directed us backstage for our photo session, every player that we saw was just as excited to be there as the kids watching.
