All teams in Benalla Basketball Association’s domestic competition are keen to get on the court again when play starts next week after an eight-week break.

As a result of the increased popularity this season, the BBA has been able to introduce two new under-12 representative sides, which is a boost for Benalla basketball.

During the break squad members continued training in preparation for upcoming tournaments in Wodonga on February 8 and 9, and Benalla on February 22 and 23.

Benalla will have nine representative teams across all age groups, which hope to repeat successes from last year’s Wangaratta and Shepparton tournaments, where the under-16 and under-14 girls were grand finalists and runners-up in their respective divisions.

In division one, Benalla’s under-16 boys were narrowly defeated by one point in the preliminary final.

The free junior development program will start again on Wednesday, February 19 at Benalla P-12 College Clarke St campus from 4pm to 5pm.

Children aged between six and 12 years are encouraged to attend and new members are always welcome.

For more information phone co-ordinator Evelyn Cogger on 0400557785.
