CQ CUP Announced!
It's official... we're going to have a senior rep season in 2020!
Basketball Qld is proud to announce the CONOCOPHILLIPS CENTRAL QUEENSLAND CUP tipping off in October.
Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton and Mackay will do battle over 2 months with both men's and women's divisions competing.
BQ Press Release:
BQ Chief Operating Officer Joshua Pascoe praised the four clubs on their initiative and collaboration with BQ to make the league a reality this year.
“With a starvation of high-level sport during the COVID pandemic, it’s exciting that the collective work of these Central Queensland associations will get this league off the ground, with the goal to continue running the competition annually,” Pascoe said.
“With the cancellation of the 2020 NBL 1 season and logistical issues for these associations to be involved with the QSL, it was extremely important that teams in Central Queensland were still able to compete at a senior representative level. To be able to provide a platform for not only the players, but the wider basketball community to support, is a huge step for Central Queensland hoops enthusiasts.”
“It is extremely exciting for all involved and I know that we all can’t wait for the season to commence. We’re also thankful to ConocoPhillips for coming onboard as naming sponsor in year one,” Pascoe added.
