Social Basketball Christchurch at Wharenui Gym


In 2016, after 5 years of closure due to the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, Wharenui gym re-opened its doors with a great new modern basketball stadium. The new Sports complex includes 2 side-by-side three-quarter size basketball courts.

Social Basketball Christchurch started off as a league in the old Wharenui gym (it was our main venue from 1993 – 2011) and since the mid-2016 reopening has returned: the basketball stadium is booked for our leagues for Mon, Tues, Wed & Thurs evenings! Given the gym’s central location and excellent facilities we are very pleased to be back. 

Thanks Wharenui.
