Brisbane is heating up.

It’s time to put your wasted youth to good use.

Netherworld, Fortitude Valley’s popular arcade bar, is looking for superstar hoopers to compete in the ultimate NBA Jam tournament.

24 teams will battle it out for the chance to win a $500 cash prize, a fistful of Netherworld tokens, and, of course, a championship trophy.

It costs $20 to register each two-person team, but they’ll throw in two schooners of beer for every duo who shows up in matching team uniforms.

It’s a spectator sport, too, as all games will be shown live on the big screen in the arcade room.

After the tournament, The Two Bit Movie Club will be screening ’90s Oscar contenders Space Jam and Air Bud in the arcade room from 7:30pm.

This is your chance to finally get that degree from Dunkin On U!

From Downtown! NBA Jam Throwdown will be held at Netherworld (186 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley) on Sunday 25 June from 2pm. Register your team at fromdowntown.eventbrite.com.au.
