Home Game Themes

One of the most exciting parts of coming to support Melbourne’s WNBL team is you get the chance to join in on fun and inclusive themes. You’ll love them!

Don’t forget, after every game you can step on court and meet your favourite Boomers – they’ll stay on court for you for up to 45 minutes – it’s a great time to grab an autograph or take a selfie.

Come and join in the fun, dress up, get loud and enjoy all the action. Here’s our 2018/19 home game themes.
