About The Harlem Globetrotters
Beginning on the south side of Chicago in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have featured many famous names in basketball including Wilt Chamberlain, Connie Hawkins, Jerome James and Hubert Ausbie.
A former regular participant in the World Professional Basketball Tournament, the Globetrotters made the switch from serious basketball team to comedic exhibition team when the National Basketball Association began allowing African-American players in the league.
Since then, the team has grown into an entertainment powerhouse, playing more than 20.000 exhibition games in 120 countries.
Trademarks of their show include skilful handling of multiple basketballs, artfully passing or juggling the ball between players, various balancing and ball spinning acts and making unusually difficult shots or dunks.
In addition to their tricks, the team is famous for their showmanship with an emphasis on crowd engagement and participation. The show is sure to be entertaining and is suitable for audiences of all ages!
