First timers goin to a game???

My partner and I have never been to a game, however are considering going to a game.
We watch the odd game here and there, but more so for the entertainment value.
Is a 36ers game worth it or what should we expect?
We figure Gold seating on the sides is better than behind the basket.
We arent big sports fans, but if there is an entertainment value, we consider this something good to go too.

Any thoughts? Positive or negative?

sit on sides for sure - rather than the ends.

if you can afford it - buy platinum tickets.

go 1 hr early and have a meal in the apollo restaurant (well priced pub style meal)

Fast paced action without the silly, unnecessary fast paced scoring ;)

Definitely aim to sit on the sides or possibly the diagonals. It's good entertainment.

Diagonals for me, but if you are going for one-off entertainment get yourself as close to the court as possible even if it takes a few extra $$, you really get to see how quick the action is from there.

DO NOT make any jokes about the opposition team or coach. Chairs in bubble wrap pranks will just get you persecuted on this site ; )


Is a great atmosphere if you have never been, as someone else said, go early and get a meal at Apollo (this should also saving you needing to go to the canteen at the break...that is a nightmare).

Also enjoy the Pale Ale!

my Sister is not into sports and I talked her into checking out a Breakers game and she loved it.
She now goes all the time with her Husband (who's never been into much sport either) and her 2 kids who play mini ball and they all love it.
The NBL has some quality athletes and there have been some great games this season, you won't regret going and def get the seats on the sides.

IMO the south side of the court is better than the northern side.

I was the same 5 years ago when I first moved to Oz (and Cairns). Love it now, been to every home game bar one for the last 2 and a half years. Well worth it.
