Have you ever seen a court as colourful as the iconic Choi Hung Estate!? Located in the Wong Tai Sin District of Kowloon, it will brighten your day all day long! @itsgmfernandez
"They feel comfortable. This is about so much more than teaching the skills of the game. Charity Bounce makes them feel valued because of the person they are, and provides them with educational tools and employment opportunities that they perhaps would never have been exposed to otherwise” - @JenniScreen9 Great piece from Basketball Australia with our coach and ambassador Jenni Screen!

We believe we can inspire positive change through the development of sports, the arts, health, education and employment focused social programs.

The @charitybounce team spent the day at Aboriginal Cultural Competence & Safety training with the amazing Carly and Keenan Mundine. What a fantastic day with some great advocates for young Indigenous Australians! #naidoc #alwayswasalwayswillbe #insideoutajc @keenanmundine @arlycayy
While we're busy preparing for our 2018 Larapinta Trail trek, the young people of the Nyewente community are keen to try out their new 3x3 basketball court. It's all thanks to our sponsors and donations that we're able to create positive outcomes in these communities. @kevoooo22 and @darceegarbin https://fundraise.charitybounce.org/fundraising/cal-bruton/charity-bounce---larapinta-trek
Our Stand Tall program in Alice Springs has been developing life and leadership skills to inspire the region's youth. By bringing iconic professional basketball players to these out of reach communities, we're sharing important life skills and creating unique experiences for these incredible kids.
