Home Game Themes

One of the most exciting parts of coming to support the Boomers is that you get the chance to join in on fun and inclusive themes. We know you’ll enjoy them!

Don’t forget, after every game you can step on court and meet your favourite Boomers – they’ll hang around for about45 minutes which is the perfect timeto grab an autograph or take a selfie.

Come and join in the fun – dress up, get loud and enjoy all the action. Here are our 2019/20 home game themes.

Saturday February 1 @ 7pm – Girls Day Out

After great success last year, we’ve brought this round back again! This game is dedicated to all the girls (and ladies) out there. Mums, daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmas, best friends, school mates, girlfriends, teammates – this is about representing women in sport and in the community. This year, this game also happens to be the final round of the WNBL home and away season, so there’s even more reason to come along. Make it a big day out. Make it a Girls Day Out!
