Local Sport / Port Douglas Basketball is back!


Port Douglas Basketball Club has re-started competition with a bang this week – after completion of their COVID-19 preparation plan. The Plan sees Club officials complete an on-line training session provided by Basketball Queensland, part of a comprehensive education and monitoring program with players and officials. 

Action from Primary School-aged mixed games

The season re-started on Tuesday night with the Open Men’s competition games. Over fifty people attended the Cyclone Shelter to participate in, and watch two very close matches showcasing the best of our home-grown talent.

The Open Men’s competition is for males over 15 years of age, and opening games were dominated by young men who have grown up in the local Club. They’ve all been itching to get back to the game, so there was plenty of excitement.

In the first match, team Blue (48) defeated team Yellow (40) with top goal scorers being Lamar Enoch for team Yellow (26) and Luke Hull (23) from team Blue.

The second match saw team Purple (45) defeat team Red (38). Top scorers were Toby Hull (19) for team Purple and Anesu Taderera (8) for team Red.

Wednesday saw the return of the Aussie Hoops kids, followed by the Primary School aged kids’ competition. More than 30 kids participated in training, skills development and mixed girls’ and boys’ competition.

Port Douglas Basketball is well and truly back and going from strength to strength.
