Griffith Scrimmage a Success

On Saturday May 24th Griffith hosted a Wheelchair Basketball Scrimmage at Westend Sports Stadium, Griffith. Teams travelled from Canberra and Wagga Wagga to participate in a social development event. The day consisted of a round robin of matches from 10am – 5pm as well as a coaching session which was taken by sisters Jess Pellow (Sydney Uni Flames Women National League Player) and Ashlea Pellow (NSW Junior Wheelchair Basketball Captain). With outstanding long shots from Griffith, Wagga’s consistency with baskets and Soraj’s speed on the court from Canberra, there was clear talent in the stadium and the players improved their skills throughout the day. Canberra and Wagga fought out close matches against each other and both finished the day with three wins. The winner was decided on for and against with the Canberra Chargers finishing in first place. Thank you to the local referees and bbq helpers who kindly volunteered their time.
