WNWBL rolls into town this weekend

The first round of the 2009 Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball League (WNWBL) tips off in Perth on Friday night.

Featuring a number of the Beijing Bronze medal-winning Gliders, the tenth WNWBL season will be conducted by the Wheelchair Sports Australia and Basketball Australia.

This year four teams, the Goudkamp Gladiators, Hills Hornets,  Victorian Dandenong Rangers and Perth Western Stars, will battle it out over four preliminary rounds of competition followed by a Finals Series to be held in Sydney in September.

This season looks to be a very competitive one with many past and future Australian representatives working hard to gain a spot in the Gliders team in the lead up to the 2009 World Wheelchair Basketball Championships.
