2018 Country Cup – 24 to 26 August; Sydney Academy of Sport, Narrabeen
Country Cup is a chance for regional WS NSW members to come together and play competitive wheelchair basketball against other regions. The inclusion of a regional forum and coach/official training hopes to up-skill our regional members to strengthen the regions and programs. No team? No problem! Register as an individual and we’ll match you with a team.
All participants must register individually whether they are on a team or not, and only one person needs to register the team.
