It was the fourth time the Joondalup-based team has won the State Basketball League title, snapping an 18-year drought.

The men’s team couldn’t match the women’s grand final success, narrowly losing to Lakeside Lightning.

The City is proud to support the the Wanneroo Basketball Association, with more than 2000 members.

It is looking forward to working with the association as it prepares for a move to Arena Joondalup after the council approved $4 million towards the upgrade of facilities at the arena. The development will result in additional indoor courts and a new home for the association.

‘I was privileged to be at the WA Basketball Centre for the women’s grand final against the Eastern Suns and it was terrific to see the lady Wolf pack pull away after a tight first half to record a comfortable 25-point victory,’ Mayor Troy Pickard said.

‘This SBL title is a fantastic reward for everyone who has worked so hard for so long to bring success to the Wolves.’
