 Win a trip to Hawaii with the Sydney Kings!

The Sydney Kings and Hawaii Tourism Oceania are giving you the chance to join them in Hawaii for a holiday of sunshine, cocktails and all the behind the scenes action with the team.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Kings play before the season starts, plus you’ll get to take in all that beautiful Hawaii has to offer. Enter your details here for your chance to win!

Oh, and it’s not just you going if you win. You get to bring not one, but three friends!

The prize includes return flights to Hawaii for four and five nights accommodation for four at The Residences at Waikiki Beach Tower. Sounds pretty damn good, right?

Well, you’ll also get tickets to the Kings v Clippers game, Stan Sheriff Centre, Honolulu on game night, September 30. You’ll be sitting pretty in the assigned Sydney Kings seating section – and you’ll also get to attend a ‘closed-doors’ practice session with the team, as they prepare for this NBA clash, and travel to and from that practice session with the team itself.

PLUS, you and your mates will get to dine with the team, in an exclusive breakfast with the players and coaches, Friday September 28th, at the team’s hotel. That night, experience an “Evening with the Coach”, Andrew Gaze, as he addresses the group on the evening of the 28th, giving insight into the preparation, game-plan and what might lie ahead over the final 48 hours of preparation of this NBA contest.

There’s also a private tour of the Stan Sheriff Centre venue waiting for you, led by the Sydney Kings General Manager of Basketball Jeff Van Groningen on the day prior to the game. Check out the locker room area, courtside, and you’ll be joined by an executive from the venue who will give full insight and detail into the game.

Oh, and you’ll also receive limited edition merchandise. Need we say more?
