The Nunawading Spectres are excited to announce a new two-year naming rights partnership with Burwood One Shopping Centre that will see both women’s and men’s South East Australian Basketball League (SEABL) teams known as the Nunawading ‘Burwood One’ Spectres.
“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with such a strong brand in our community,” Nunawading Basketball Operations Manager Paul Flynn said.
“This partnership has developed over time, from a SEABL player partner to now the naming rights partner of our Nunawading ‘Burwood One’ Spectres SEABL teams.”
“Burwood One and its retailers will play an instrumental role in our efforts to grow our profile further and introduce the game of basketball, whether it be as a spectator or participant to even more people across the community.”
Nunawading Basketball is home to the Melbourne East Basketball Association (MEBA) and its representative teams – the Nunawading Spectres. At present, Nunawading Basketball facilitates programs and competitions for in excess of 12,000 players, coaches and officials on a weekly basis, making in one of Australia’s largest and most successful basketball associations.
A foundation program of both the NBL and WNBL, the Spectres made the switch into SEABL (then CBA) in the early 90’s – maintaining Nunawading Basketball Centre as their home base. To this day, the SEABL provides a platform for the Spectres to compete on a national stage and a peak of their elite development pathway. The 2018 SEABL season is scheduled to tip off April 7.
“Burwood One Shopping Centre, is a community based Centre and we are proud to be partnering with Nunawading Basketball,”
said Burwood One Marketing Manager Michelle Curtis.
The partnership with Burwood One further strengthens Nunawading Basketball’s commitment to providing its clubs, teams and members with premium resources with a focus on growing our footprint in the community.
