THE Warwick Senators kick off their Indigenous Recognition game Thursday night.

The men and women will wear artist Kevin Bynder-designed jerseys as the club collaborates with Perth Redbacks to celebrate Indigenous culture.

The SBL fixture will be played at the Churches of Christ Sport and Recreation Association-managed Warwick Stadium.

“Utilising the club colours and depicting the journey that players take through Warwick Stadium to develop from the junior ranks up through to the state level, Kevin has done a phenomenal job in telling this story,” Association operations director Scott Joy said.

“To see this artwork then translated into the fantastic design our players will be wearing, we feel privileged and proud to be an organisation that values our significant engagement with our Indigenous families and the broader local community.”

Warwick has long held Indigenous basketball carnivals, deepening ties with Binar Junior Basketball Club and the weekly patronage of Aboriginal families as part of the local basketball community.

“Warwick is one of only two places that we choose to play at; our young Aboriginal players feel part of the community and look forward to getting out on the court each week,” Binar president Adam Desmond said.

The Joondalup Wolves host the Rockingham Flames Thursday night.
