Australia Day Help Needed

The Suncoast Clippers Australia Day Basketball Carnival attracts record numbers for 2016.

      The Sunscoast Clippers will again play host to some of Southern Queensland best and some of its most social basketball players in this year’s Australia Day Basketball Carnival to be held this weekend.

     With a record 46 teams comprising over 350 basketballers playing across six divisions there will basketball of all levels to enjoy. The record number of A grade men featuring Internationals   Zane Meehl, Darren Best, and Josh Walters who return to the Sunshine Coast Basketball Association’s Phoenix Clippers squad this year, ensures great entertainment for the Sunshine Coast sports community

     Current, National Basketball League, Queensland Basketball League, and the South East Australian Basketball League, players have nominated for this year’s carnival so we can expect a very high standard of basketball.

     The Carnival will be played over three days Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Clippers indoor Sports Stadium and the USC indoor sports Centre. Admission is free with food and drinks available at both venues.

     This age old tradition has become a fixture on the Basketball Queensland Calender since its inception in 1974 when it was played at the outdoor courts in Cotton Tree. The continuous hosting of this event on the Sunshine Coast has facilitated this fantastic opportunity for past players and current stars to get together at the end of the Festive season.

     The carnival is not only for the stars of our game with a large number of teams enjoying a more social weekend playing in the Ladies and Men’s C divisions. These games are always a chance to sink a few more baskets, shut down a past foe or two, recall some great past victories, and generally enjoy the great game, and the people who make i
