Considered as one of the country’s favorite sport (aside from boxing), basketball is always a great activity to learn and try. Nothing else is very Filipino by playing with your friends on your local or even makeshift courts. Make the game more interesting by having a bet at the end of every game like, let’s say losers will buy bottles of RC Cola for everyone. Not really familiar how to play basketball? No worries! Filipino Basketball Academy gives adult basketball training for those who want to learn the sport.

Nothing beats the feeling of crossing the finish line and at the same time knowing that you helped someone in need too.
