Beyond Screens – Big Games: HORSE w/ Toni Pizza and Gwynna Forgham-Thrift

March 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

What’s the best way to HORSE around? With a basketball, of course! Greg Trefry and Debra Everett-Lane, organizers of the Come Out & Play Festival, meet up with Toni Pizza and Gwynna Forgham-Thrift from the NYU Game Center to play HORSE, try some trick shots, and chat about games and sports.

Gwynna Forgham-Thrift is one-half of the team behind The Sportswoman, a weekly email newsletter and twitch.tv show about the incredible world of women’s sports. She also produces events for the NYU Game Center and plays point guard for New York City’s best adult rec basketball team, the Space Clams.
