Nunawading Basketball News



NUNAWADING BASKETBALL | The Nunawading Spectres Under 14 Boys will challenge for National Championship glory later this year, having qualified for the Australian Club Championships to be held at Kilsyth 1-6 October 2018.

Currently atop the MUVJBL standings (13-1) it was the Spectres fine form in the opening 9 Rounds of competition that secured the invitation to mix it with Australia’s best young basketball talent.

“We’re delighted to have qualified for the 2018 Australian Club Championships,” Head Coach Darren Rogers said.

“It’s a privilege and honour to represent the Spectres and Victoria at this once in a lifetime event.”

“We look forward to taking on the challenges that will be put to us at this prestigious tournament and representing Nunawading Basketball to the best of our ability.”

A total of 24 teams from around Australia will contest the 2018 Championships, an event that has seen numerous Australian Boomers feature in years gone by. The competition will be dived into six pools for the opening round of play, with the top two teams in each pool advancing  into a playoff for the Ken Watson Championship Trophy.

The Nunawading Spectres won the inaugural U14 Boys Australian Club Championships back in 1970, and again in 1983, 1985 and 2002.

“The team would like to thank the MUVJBL, Melbourne East Basketball Association, Nunawading Spectres Junior Committee, coaches, parents, friends and our major sponsor Uni Hill Factory Outlets for the opportunity and the tremendous support we have received,” Rogers said.

The team has begun various fundraising activities ahead of the Australian Club Championships. Should you wish to support the team, a Go Fund Me Page has been established and can be accessed by clicking on the button below.
