The game shall tip-off at 7.00pm at the Kilsyth Basketball Stadium, Liverpool Road in Kilsyth.
The Dandenong Jayco Rangers finished last year in third position, losing to eventual champion Adelaide in the preliminary final. The team will again be led by coach Dale Waters, and has recruited some exciting new talent in AIS graduates Nicole Hunt and Katie Ebzery to add to an already formidable roster.
Dandenong’s WNBL team is also home to Kilsyth’s own Clare Papavs, a key member of the Lady Cobras who took out this year’s SEABL Championship. This will be Clare’s second year on the Rangers roster and she will be eager to continue her good form after a stellar SEABL season.
The Bendigo Spirit has also added some exciting young talent to its’ ranks after finishing just outside the finals last year. It has secured the much sought after Hanna Zavecz who returns from college, along with Eleanor Haring from Perth and Deanne Butler from Bulleen.
Dandenong Jayco Rangers General Manager Peter Roach says “the game will be a great opportunity for the supporters of basketball in Kilsyth to see two quality national league teams in their own backyard. Dandenong values the support provided by Kilsyth and thanks the Association for their support of elite level basketball.”
“Further, Kilsyth has provided us with a fantastic opportunity to promote our PINK Ticket initiative through their networks. The initiative aims to encourage young females to play and follow the sport, and provides every member with a free ticket to watch Dandenong’s WNBL home games throughout the season. Any girl aged from 6-18 can join simply by completing the form on our website www.dandenongbasketball.com.au .”
Tickets will be available at the door at a cost of just $5 for adults and $2 for children.
