Celebrity couple and Spider-Man costars Zendaya and Tom Holland made a surprise visit to an Oakland middle school on Friday, where they showed off some basketball skills to a crowd of onlookers.

Photos and videos posted to Zendaya’s Instagram story show the pair in her hometown, attending a basketball game at West Oakland Middle School. They were there as part of a event organized by local nonprofits Hoopbus and Project Backboard.

In Zendaya’s story, Holland is seen dribbling a basketball and wearing a T-shirt by local clothing brand Oaklandish that reads, “Oakland Roots.” A video posted by “Hustle” actor and basketball player Elvin Rodriguez shows Zendaya assisting him with a layup on the court.

Hoopbus operates out of a retrofitted 40-foot yellow school bus that is driven around the country. Members teach students about racism and racial inequalities via basketball demonstrations. Project Backboard renovates basketball courts at public schools using colorful, large-scale artwork. 

“I just came to say hi to all of you, see your beautiful faces, and have a great time,” Zendaya said in a speech given to the crowd.
