SPALDING LAUNCHES A NEW OFFICIAL GAME BALL FOR THE WNBL

Spalding is thrilled to unveil a new Official Game Ball for the Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL).

Featuring a bold new colour palette and panel design, the new ball infuses WNBL brand components, elevating it to a premium visual aesthetic that replicates the elite standing of the basketball league.

“Spalding are proud to be a partner of the WNBL, supporting Women’s sport in our country, and are thrilled to unveil the new ball design for the upcoming season.  We are looking forward to seeing the ball in action throughout the course of the season, as well as inspiring future stars to pick up a Spalding and hit the court,” says Naomi Maclean, Marketing Director at Spalding.

Offering its highest level of composite leather (TF-1000), the ZK composite material features enhanced feel and durability, advanced moisture management and deep channel design for superior control.  The ball also features a wet grip microfibre composite, providing an elite moisture kicking surface.

Spalding is committed to continuing to shine a spotlight on women’s basketball in Australia.  From the Opals through to the National Teams in the WNBL, Spalding Australia has been the Official Ball sponsor for the elite women’s league since 2010.

Head of WNBL, Christy Collier-Hill says, “The WNBL is once again thrilled to be partnering with Spalding for the upcoming season.  They’ve been long-time supporters of not only the league, but women’s basketball in general.  We’re also super excited to see a brand new WNBL Spalding ball hitting the court this season and can’t wait to see it in action.”

Launching on court on during Round 1 of the WNBL, the ball is available at spalding.com.au in time for the new season. RRP $149.
