The 2015 edition of the National Basketball Championships (NBC) will not only showcase some of the best male talent, with the addition of a womens competition BBNZ aim to strengthen the female game.
The tournament will be played at the Trusts Arena Waitakere, Auckland with the Northern Zone as host of the 2015 NBC for men and women from September 9th – 12th. As well as adding a womens competition, BBNZ has also decided to push back the U23 National Championship Tournament to run alongside the NBC; same dates and venue.
BBNZ Chief Executive Iain Potter was positive that associations would still register teams in both competitions saying, “we encourage Associations to look at these two Championships as opportunities to offer your post school basketball players the chance to play representative basketball – enter teams in both if you can, they should serve different purposes”.
The overall event will be branded as the ‘National Basketball Championships’ (NBC) with the Under 23 National Championship being a sub-set of them. The NBC and Under 23’s are subject to the same eligibility rules as all other Championships – where players live determines their eligibility.
