WBC Div Two Ready to Tip Off

WBC Div Two Ready to Tip Off

New Zealand's Women's Basketball Championship (WBC) season starts next weekend in Christchurch when all 14 teams will be in town for a tournament at Cowles Stadium.

Split across two divisions, with six teams in the top flight and eight teams competing in the second level of competition, there is a lot to like about the latter where it's an open race to the 2019 title.

Teams in WBC Division Two include Harbour Zephyrs, McAlpines M10 MEGA North Canterbury Spirit, South Canterbury Stealers, Wellington, Rotorua Lady Geysers, Capital Swish, Power Chill Waikato Country Cannons and Northland Phoenix.
