Last weekend, Niagara Park Stadium hosted the first Spalding Waratah Women’s League Central Venue for the 2024 season – seeing nearly 100 athletes across nine teams meet for the first set of cross-over matches.

The 2024 Spalding Waratah Women’s League has seen amazing growth, with an additional four teams added to the league from the 2023 season – meaning the league has expanded into new regions.

The first Central Venue for 2024 was nothing short of thrilling, with our athlete’s demonstrating a high level of skill and talent in the league, and spectator’s eagerly watched on. The excitement was palpable in the stadium, and the intensity of the match-ups made for great basketball viewing.

Sunday, 12th May, was also Mother’s day, which was celebrated in style with the mothers participating as players, coaches and managers. Basketball brings many together, and this weekend was no different.
