By BACT Media Unit – 24 March 2022

With the debut season of the Coles Express NBL 1 East competition and the Waratah League set to commence in early April 2022, Basketball ACT drew their top-squads together to launch the season on Sunday 20 March 2022 at Howling Moon Roof Top Bar in Turner.

As the Canberra Gunners and Canberra Nationals step up to the newest conference of the NBL 1 competition, and the Canberra Gunners Academy and Canberra Nationals Academy assuming their places in the Spalding Waratah 1 competitions, 2022 is set to be a MASSIVE year – both on and off the court, for Canberra basketball.

Basketball ACT CEO, David Simpson, spoke about the amazing opportunity the new season brings, and thanked everyone who has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming season, in his opening address.

It was then over to the coaches of the respective programs to introduce their squads for the season, with both Academy teams announced, followed by the Canberra Nationals and Canberra Gunners teams.

A big shout-out to all of our sponsors for the 2022 season.
