Domestic teams reach 500

Basketball in Ballarat is thriving with 500 teams entered and playing in the current 2019 championship season. A record number of junior teams is also being recorded with 323 teams scheduled to play or have a bye each week.

Whilst BSEC is so close to being finished, it seems so far away for the teams that are playing at 6.10pm and 7pm on a Saturday. Fortunately this is very short term with junior teams being fixtured to play at BSEC as soon as the doors open.

Senior sides will also see the benefit as soon as possible with the agreed 10.10pm timeslot being removed as quickly as possible.


For our junior sides that are scheduled to play on a Saturday at 6.10pm and 7pm from now until the July holidays, when you purchase a domestic game ticket you will also receive a double pass to any home game for the Miners and Rush for the remainder of the regular season.

Fixtures for ALL junior grades are now online! Fixtures go through until the 20th of July as changes may need to be made once the centre opens.

No date has been confirmed yet for the opening of BSEC but the basketball department is hopeful of a July holiday period opening.
