The Deakin Melbourne Boomers will ignite this week’s home game on Saturday with the return of its popular theme – Double The Boom.
A huge crowd turned up last January when the Double The Boom – Bring A Friend For Free promotion was launched for a game against Adelaide, ensuring the club committed to running the same promotion again this season.
“It was such a huge success last season, so we wanted to make sure we dedicated a game to it again, this time it will be against Perth on Saturday December 5,” said GM, Justin Nelson.
“Double The Boom entitles every child to bring a friend for free. For every child ticket purchased, you will receive another child ticket for free. It’s a great way to bring more people to the WNBL and for friends to come together.”
Melbourne has been widely lauded for its game presentation this season and it’s something that Nelson says will only get bigger and better as the season rolls on.
“We’ve made a really concerted effort to bring entertainment to the game, both on and off the court. The players are and always will be the drawcard, they are incredible athletes and put on a fantastic show, but we want to make sure that show continues during the breaks in the game as well.”
One of the most popular additions this season has been mascot Dexter the Dragon, and his three-quarter time Conga Line has certainly been embraced with kids flocking onto the court to join in.
“It’s been an amazing success,” said Nelson, adding “Dexter is already much-loved by the fans and the chance for the kids to come down onto the court during the game and dance around with Dexter just keeps getting bigger every game.”
