2024 GUB Tournament

Korr Korr Ngitji (Coming Together)

Geelong United Basketball (GUB) is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to inspire lifelong physical activity through the sport of basketball.

GUB will once again be holding a celebration of our sport by Coming Together (Waddawurrung: Korr Korr Ngitji) at a festival of basketball!

Now in its second year, the tournament will be held this coming November across the six venues that host Geelong United’s community games each week.

Over the course of the weekend, teams will play a minimum of four games against other VJBL clubs, country associations and community teams from across the state.

In addition to the tournament, GUB will also be holding several development clinics and courses directed at community and club coaching, score table officials, and referees.

For more information on any aspect of the event, please contact Liz Pilon via epilon@geelongunitedbasketball.com.au or call us on 03 5277 1388.
