Eight years ago, a keen group of Senior School boys entered a team in the Friday night competition run by the Melbourne East Basketball Association (MEBA).
Interest in basketball has grown to such an extent that we now have fifteen teams entered in this weekend competition; for both girls and boys - Under 8, two Under 10s. three Under 12s, three Under 14s, four Under 16s and an Under 18 and Under 23 (The latter team comprised of old students).
Students love to play together at the weekend and the older teams often attract fellow-students as spectators. All teams have great support from Huntingtower families and the Mums and Dads enjoy catching-up each weekend.
The younger students enjoy learning the rudiments of this popular game and the older ones enjoy learning the skills and tactics required to keep pace with the keen competition. Many of the teams have been finalists and a good number of "Huntingtower Heat" teams have won premierships.
