The Comet Bay Panthers under-11 girls team were given the opportunity to play basketball at half-time for the Perth Lynx game at the Bendat Stadium on November 2.
The team has played in the Mandurah Basketball Association since 2017 and is made up of a team of friends from Singleton Primary School.
Several extra players from the Comet Bay Stars, another team in the Mandurah Basketball Association, also helped make the team for the Lynx game.
The team’s coach Melissa Abbey was there to support the girls and also helped to referee the game against Townsville Fire.
Comet Bay Basketball Club secretary Melissa Abbey said the girls set aside their nerves and ran out on the court for an amazing game of basketball.
“The players pride themselves on teamwork and fun and the Lynx game had everyone on the edge of their seats with the game going into overtime on a draw,” she said.
“The opposition, Townsville Fire eventually won, but it was such a great game to be apart of.
“The players all appreciated this amazing opportunity to watch and play on the same court as Perth Lynx.”
After playing the game, the team members were able to speak with the Lynx players and learn about what it takes to become professional basketball players.
