GIRLS Got Game is uniting with Melbourne Boomers and Dandenong Rangers to bring all the WNBL excitement to a pair of Friday nights!
Two GGG events will be held at State Basketball Centre (Friday 30 November) and Dandenong (Friday 7 December) as part of special event coordinated with the two WNBL clubs based in Metropolitan Melbourne.
These nights will have special fixtures to make sure the venues are full to the brim with eager, young female basketballers who get the chance to meet their heroes and role models from the WNBL.
The events will take place over two nights in Melbourne and Dandenong where there will be various activities, merchandise giveaways, WNBL players in attendance and free WNBL tickets available to the registered players in the program.
Melbourne Boomers will deck out the State Basketball Centre in purple with all participating female players at the event receiving a special prize pack and tickets to the WNBL!
Each registered player in the program will receive a Melbourne Boomers poster and a free ticket to the Boomers vs Sydney Uni Girls Day Out match on Saturday 8 December. In addition all Melbourne Boomers players will be in attendance on the special GGG event including Victorian champions like Maddie Garrick, Monique Conti and team captain Jenna O’Hea.
They will all be available for meet and greets, photos on the night at the venue with merchandise available for purchase.
Team Managers will be able to pick up the players’ free tickets and posters via the Boomers Table and if that wasn’t enough… the famous Boomers jumping castle and numerous giveaways on the night makes this a celebration you don’t want to miss!
The Dandenong event will be held on Friday 7 December at the Dandenong Stadium with plenty of giveaways and surprises in store! Dandenong’s WNBL stars will be out and about to greet our junior stars.
These events have been put together to help propel our Girls Got Game program even further! The MUVJBL established the Girls Got Game program to celebrate all women and girls in basketball. The program was established with the purpose to increase participation and retention of girls in basketball and promote young, up and coming athletes in the sport.
