Adam Sandler surprises London fans by showing up to shoot hoops in local pickup basketball game



Adam Sandler was a long way from Hollywood ahead of Sunday’s 2024 Oscars.

The “Happy Gilmore” star was seen surprisingly shooting hoops at a London recreation center this week to the delight of young fans.

Sandler, 57, spontaneously showed up to the Kensington Leisure Centre, according to social media clips.

Footage showed Sandler in a Hawaiian short and gray sweatpants showing off his moves on the court, and being surrounded by kids trying to get selfies with the former “SNL” star.

One TikToker said in a post with a clip, “I’m in… west London. I pulled up to my local basketball court and look. Bro, that’s Adam Sandler, look bro, you lot think I’m messing?”

Sandler was spotted rocking the same loud-print shirt earlier in the week, while out and about with his wife, Jackie, for a stroll in Los Angeles.
