While the collaboration watch was the highlight, it was professional basketball player Wong Wei Long who was the star of the evening.

All in all, the Tissot Basketball Clinic conducted by SBA was nothing short of the complete experience, equipped with official NBA Spalding basketballs and a tailored professional training program for participants. A full-court game alongside Wei Long and his team of coaches rounded off the exclusive clinic. Plus, stand-out participants handpicked by the coaches walked away with a Spalding basketball too.

But at the end of the session, each and every participant had the experience of a lifetime to take home with them besides the Tissot jersey and other merchandise.
