First jump of the men’s carnival.

The Byron Bay Basketball A-grade carnival was hailed a ‘great success’ with teams coming from as far as Tasmania, Melbourne, Toowoomba, and Brisbane and including QBL and SEABL players.

The West Brisbane Falcons women came back and won the championship for the third time, against the formidable Post-Tels Girls.

The men’s top four teams were Post-Tels, Melbourne Wolves, Hard Knockz and Vote for Pedro.

They all fought hard but the Melbourne Wolves and Vote for Pedro were knocked out.

The Post-Tels Men won the championship over Hard Knockz.

The hard working committee would like to thanks all the players, referees and supporters for making this weekend work and we will see everyone back again next year.
