There is just one week to go until seven wheelchair basketball clubs from around the country descend upon the Morayfield Sports and Events Centre in Queensland for the National Wheelchair Tournament.
Held across July 14-16, it’s the first time Wheelchair League tournament has been modelled on Basketball Australia’s (BA) successful National Championships format, where all teams travel to one location to compete in the Championships – allowing for clubs to all come together for a festival of wheelchair basketball.
The tournament will see four gender neutral, and three women’s teams will compete across three days for their respective titles.
In the gender-neutral category there’s the Wollongong Roller Hawks – who took the spoils last year and are the reigning champs – Southern Districts Spartans, Perth Wheelcats and Darwin Salties. In the women’s division it will be the Perth Wheelcats, Sydney University Flames and the Blues Wheelchair Basketball Club looking to claim the major prize.
Tipping off on Friday 14 July with the pool phase, there will be a total of eight games in the gender-neutral category, and five games in the women’s category, with finals to be played on Sunday 16 July.
All games will be streamed during the tournament via the official Wheelchair Leagues website – click here to watch.
Basketball Australia would like to thank Moreton Bay Regional Council for its support in hosting the event.
The tournament is free to attend!
The competition is also a pathway to senior representation and national team selection.
