Team UWA have joined the latest pathway to elite Australian sport, the University Basketball League (UBL).
UniSport Australia announced the creation of UBL, endorsed by Basketball Australia, and supported by the respective State Basketball Associations.
Both men’s and women’s competitions will be featured, culminating in a finals weekend to determine Australia’s number one basketball university.
UWA is the only team from Western Australia to feature both a men’s and women’s team.
The UBL will also provide unique work integrated learning opportunities for students, assisting in their academic development by providing practical experience.
UWA is currently undertaking talent identification across campus, with travelling teams set to be announced in late February.
