The Regional Challenge was to be a one off event to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the North West back in 2009 but due to its success it has remained an important part of the MUVJBL calendar.
This year’s Regional Challenge is to be held at the State Basketball Centre on 14 July. Each team invited to the event was top of their competition ladder after round 9 of the MUVJBL Competition. Teams from a number of country towns will represent their regions including Seymour, Bacchus Marsh, Geelong and Bellarine.
The top team from North West Region will play the top team from East/Southern Region in a one off game, there are twelve games commencing at 6:40pm on the night in the under-12, under-14 and under-16 age groups
With live streaming of games it will make it possible for those unable to attend to still catch up with the action via the internet.
The Girls Got Game crew will be in attendance and awards are to be given out in all Girls matches on the night with Smash FM conducting interviews with the winners of Girls Got Game.
The East/Southern Region won the David Hickman Trophy for only the third time last year. There are plenty of giveaways on the night to those in attendance.
