This Girl Can Come and Try – Postponed

The 2020 This Girl Can Victoria, Come and Try Basketball event has been postponed until further notice.

Due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in Victoria, the decision has been made by the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services to postpone This Girl Can Week and subsequent activities planned by event partners.This means that the Basketball Victoria Come and Try event that you have registered to attend on March 27 at Casey Stadium has now been postponed.


Registrations will re-open when a future date has been locked in. 

Original: As part of the week, Basketball Victoria is hosting a FREE, women’s only Come and Try session in Melbourne’s south east on Friday 27 March at Casey Stadium (65 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne East) from 1.00-2.30pm.

The session will give you a taste of all different aspects of basketball and inspire you to lace up the sneakers for the first time or return back to it.

This is an event for women of all skills levels and abilities – you don’t need any experience, just bring plenty of energy to give it a go! The first 20 women to register will receive a free showbag, so make sure you register quickly!


Registrations will re-open when a future date has been locked in. 

There will be activities for women and girls of all ages and abilities including:

  • Walking Basketball, our pioneer all-ages program allowing people with limited mobility to get involved in basketball with their friends
  • A special skills and drills session with WNBL superstars
  • Wheelchair basketball

Bring your kids along too, as we’ll have activities for the kids all day so you can focus on getting on court and giving it a go! Refreshments will also be provided.

Basketball Victoria is hosting the Come and Try Basketball session as part of This Girl Can – Victoria, a VicHealth initiative to celebrate and support Victorian women (yep, you!) embracing physical activity in a way that suits them best. Whether it’s a little or a lot, what matters is giving it a go and getting some movement into your day.

Basketball Victoria would also like to thank two of our partner WNBL teams  – Melbourne Boomers and Southside Flyers – for their support of This Girl Can Week.
