Wynberg Basketball

Basketball Overview

From its humble beginning in 1990, Wynberg Basketball has grown from strength to strength, to become one of the school’s most consistently successful sports, and, as of 2019, Wynberg’s biggest summer sport.

Starting with 2 teams and 1 coach, basketball at the school has continued to outgrow its staff and facilities and now has 12 teams and 3 staff, and 9 outside coaches, operating on four outdoor courts.
