Founded in 1973 Willetton Basketball Association Inc (WBA) has developed a strong reputation in providing successful development pathways for junior basketball players, allowing both male and female players to reach their full potential in both social and representative basketball. We have strong domestic competitions for juniors through to seniors and an enviable track record for our success with the numbers and quality of players who make it into representative and state teams.
One of the largest associations in Western Australia, with the support of more than 600 volunteers, we run a vibrant and well-supported domestic competition for juniors and seniors. Willetton Basketball Association Inc is based at the Willetton Basketball Stadium, located on Burrendah Boulevarde, opposite the Southlands Shopping Centre in Willetton.
WBA is also committed to the development of coaches and officials, to support the overall objectives of the sport of basketball.
Our stadium is largely run by a volunteer committee structure in conjunction with our Administration Manager, Stadium Manager and Competitions Coordinator, and a casual staff cohort. With many volunteers assisting our club in some way, we always gladly welcome more hands, as many make light work.
