Record numbers and a community-first vision are forming the basis of an exciting season for the Mandurah Basketball Association’s domestic competition.
Seven clubs have submitted over 300 teams for the season which tips off this coming Monday night.
The record amount of players places the league in the state’s top five for participation.
Mandurah Basketball Association operations manager Francine Nicol said it was an exciting time for the local competition, which placed a focus on community involvement.
“We’ve got some new members on the board of directors and there’s a real focus on getting the community involved in basketball, so the numbers are really encouraging,” she said.
“We’re very keen to look within our own juniors to feed into our State Basketball League teams so to have so many keen youngsters is great for basketball in the city.”
Those keen youngsters will be the first players to take to the newly refurbished courts at the Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre.
The domestic competition will be held at Halls Head Recreation Centre for the first half of the season, before moving to MARC where the under 8s will be the first to test out the new court.
The season begins this Monday night with the senior women and under 16s girls taking to the court for the first round.
