From its humble beginning in 1990, Wynberg Basketball has grown from strength to strength. Starting with 2 teams and 1 coach, basketball at the school has grown and now has 7 teams (probably the most in the Western Cape) and 6 coaching staff. Starting off by playing in the Alf Morris Centre, the sport now has two NBA outdoor courts.

Wynberg Basketball has become of the school’s most consistently successful sports, marking its milestone 25th season by competing in the St Stithians Tournament over the 2015 Easter Weekend in Johannesburg.
