It was a packed Belconnen Basketball Stadium this weekend, as the 2023 Canberra Classic saw a host of teams – from near and far – come together to get their upcoming season off to a roaring start.

With 32 teams competing in a variety of divisions – Invitational – men’s and Women’s, A Grade, B Grade and C Grade – the calibre of on-court action was high.

Thanks to everyone who made the trip including teams from Inner West Bulls, Springwood Scorchers, Hornsby Ku Ring Gai Spiders, Camden Wildfire, St George, Basketball NSW, and all the local teams.

Thanks to the referees, score-table and bench teams, and the many supporters who came out to cheer the teams on all weekend.
