2300 players. 232 teams. 39 clubs. 8 venues. 2 massive days,
The scene is set for the biggest Korr Korr Ngitji yet.
Proudly presented by Quest Geelong Central, the annual Geelong United tournament will welcome teams from across Victoria.
From Port Fairy, Warrnambool and Hamilton in the southwest, Mildura in the northwest, Wangaratta and Shepparton in the northeast, and Sale and Maffra in the southeast, teams are coming from all points of the compass.
All 50 Geelong United teams, who are supported by Jetts Geelong and Jetts Ocean Grove this weekend, from under-12 to under-18 will hit the court for the first time in preparation for the 2023/24 VJBL season.
“We’re thrilled with the support we’ve received for this year’s edition of Korr Korr Ngitji,” Geelong United Basketball CEO Mark Neeld said.
“To have an almost 50 per cent increase in teams is a resounding vote of confidence for the tournament and its importance to VJBL clubs in their preparation for the upcoming season, and the country associations who choose to have us on their tournament schedule.”
“I would like to pay tribute to the work done by the entire GUB staff for the work they’ve done bringing the two days together, especially tournament director Liz Pilon.
“I would also like to acknowledge the support of Quest Geelong Central as presenting partner of Korr Korr Ngitji and Jetts as sponsors of our Geelong United Basketball teams.
“We wish all 232 teams the best of luck this weekend.”
Games tip off at 8am on Saturday and continue until 6pm on Sunday.
There are also coaching and referee courses and Come and Try sessions across the weekend. For more details, including the Korr Korr Ngitji Handbook, head to the tournament home page.
