The Byron Bay Beez basketballers are gearing up for a new season and will be hosting a double-header to get the competition underway on Saturday 30 July.
The Byron Beez aim to have a men’s and women’s team ready to go for the Sunshine Conference.
‘With a lot of help we have been able to field what we think is a competitive Women’s Beez representative team for this season. The first time in about six-or-so years,’ Jenny Ogle said.
‘With all the problems of late we are focussing on trying to keep women and girls in sport.
Five away games
‘In these times of financial hardship, owing to the floods and pandemic, it hasn’t been easy for local businesses or the workforce, but we have managed to secure some sponsors to help with expenses, and FarmCare is our major sponsor.
‘The teams have three home events and five away games, needing to travel to Coffs Harbour, Bellingen, Lismore, and Ballina,’ she said.
The season gets underway at the Cavanbah Centre on Saturday 30 July with the women starting at 11am and the men at 1pm. And the week after, Saturday 6 August, the women play at 1pm and the men at 3pm.
