Australian U18 Basketball Championships Tips Off at Eagle Stadium
Eagle Stadium is honoured to be hosting the 2021 Australian U18 Basketball Championships from April 10th – 17th in conjunction with the Wyndham Basketball Association (WBA).
The Championships organised by Basketball Australia showcase the nation’s most talented athletes coming together to compete for the Championship Title.
In preparation for the event, Eagle Stadium has transformed to feature two additional show courts with grandstands on Court 4 and Court 6 along with our existing show court’s Court 2 grandstand.
Official Championship merchandise is available from iAthetic who have set up shop with an official stall on Court 6 selling all your Australian Championship gear from hoodies and t-shirts to backpacks and bottles.
The event launched with a sell-out opening ceremony which included an inspiring video message from former WBA junior and Australian Opals star Maddison Rocci.
After a difficult 2020, we are pleased to see Country and Metro teams from all over Australia come together to compete at this level and thank Wyndham City Council, Basketball Australia, and WBA for all their hard work behind the scenes.
The Championships have brought an electrifying atmosphere to Eagle Stadium with games leaving spectators on the edge of their seat.
