The NBL1 is Australia’s premier winter basketball competition. Featuring 18 teams from Victoria and Tasmania, the NBL1 plays host to some of the top basketball talent from both Australia and overseas, and is the league of choice for NBL and WNBL players during their off-season.
The NBL1 replaces the now disbanded SEABL starting in 2019. Our Kilsyth Cobras established themselves as one of the SEABL’s powerhouse clubs in both the Men’s and Women’s competitions, with both teams advancing to the league Preliminary Finals (Final Four) and finishing with the second best regular season records in 2018. With the majority of SEABL teams joining the newly-formed NBL1, the Cobras promise to be one of the league’s most successful and exciting teams on both the Men’s and Women’s sides.
Kilsyth’s home games are played on Hugh McMenamin Court, which is known as one of Australia’s best Basketball Association showcourts. Hugh McMenamin Court has a 1,100 seat capacity (1,400 standing room).
