A letter to our Boomers community

July 23, 2021 | Melbourne Boomers news
To our Melbourne Boomers Community,

The past year has tested us all in many ways and in the face of all these challenges our city has changed. We have learnt to be flexible and have adapted in a way only Melbournians can.

As allies of the Boomers the evidence is clear! Your support of the 2020 WNBL Season was felt all the way in Far North Queensland.

Be it on social media or broadcast channels, you were there all the way as your team went deep into the Finals and represented you, Melbourne and Victoria with strength and pride.

After 20 long months, Melbourne, the good news is in. The Melbourne Boomers will be #BACKTOBOOM for the WNBL 21-22 Season.

And we’re back with all the maturity 2020 gave us. We have the flexibility and we have adapted. We have choice.

You can now be part of our club in any way that suits you and your family.  From attending home games, following the team on the road and on social media to watching our broadcast on ABC, Fox Sports, and Kayo.

You are part of our team. You are our community.

WNBL 21/22 Season: What’s in store?
Yesterday we launched a new podcast, called WOMEN WITH DRIVE. Hosted by Boomers’ newcomer, Lou Brown, and with a huge first guest, Michele Timms. We’ll be filling the gaps on all things women’s basketball – for basketball and sports fans alike.

With a major expansion of the State Basketball Centre underway, our 11 home games will be split between SBC (when available) and the recently redeveloped State Sports Centre – Parkville (formerly State Hockey & Netball Centre).
The 10th anniversary of the Boomers WNBL Championship will be celebrated at Parkville in November, against cross-town rivals the Southside Flyers.
In January, we’ll take the WNBL to the new Gippsland Regional Indoor Sports Stadium in Traralgon, as part of our commitment to the Gippsland region.
Our community work expands across City of Knox and Gippsland, and we are excited this year to also partner with Little Big Steps: helping kids with cancer get moving.

The Melbourne Boomers Academy is broadening its programs at both State Basketball Centre and in Parkville over 21-22, as well as launching the Boomers Online Academy which will be a resource for players and coaches of all ages.
