Mornington Basketball is excited to announce that we are currently taking registrations of interest for wheelchair basketball.

Together with Basketball Victoria, Mornington Basketball sees this program as a natural extension of our inclusion philosophy by developing and supporting people with impairment.

To get this exciting program up-and-running, we are seeking interest from prospective players of any age, coaches, referees and sponsors. No experience, training or equipment is required, just a love of the game!
