University Basketball League

Support the UWA Maali in Australia's newest national basketball tournament

About

In a first for Australian sport, Basketball Australia and UniSport have signed an agreement to establish a men’s and women’s national university league to strengthen the pathway to professional basketball in Australia.

UWA will be entering both a men's and women's team in the competition who will compete in a home-and-away competition against universities from around the country.

The detail

Endorsed by Basketball Australia, and supported by the respective State Basketball Associations, the inaugural UBL tournament will be played over nine weeks, with each participating university getting the opportunity to host and livestream the matches. The 2021 UBL season is set to run from March through to May.

Both men’s and women’s competitions will be played across the country, culminating in a finals weekend to determine Australia’s number one basketball university. The creation of the UBL will also provide unique work integrated learning opportunities that will enhance the students’ academic development with practical experience.

UWA is the only team from Western Australia participating in the inaugural competition.
