The Deakin Melbourne Boomers have launched a full array of season memberships on a day that Australia’s greatest ever player Lauren Jackson said both the Boomers and the WNBL were right back where they belong – “in the spotlight.”
A day after the WNBL announced a return to television for at least the next three years on Fox Sports, the Boomers announced that Melbourne very own Opals star Liz Cambage was coming home to play for the club.
Melbourne’s WNBL team also launched its 2017-18 memberships with LJ urging fans to get in quick.
“I’m so excited about these announcements. Finally we are back in the spotlight where women’s basketball should be,” said Lauren.
“I am so proud to be a part of the Boomers Family during this time of immense growth for women in sport. You can be sure that we will be doing everything we can in the front office to make this team the most successful women’s team in Australia.”
As Assistant General Manager of the Boomers, Jackson will spearhead the club’s membership drive and says with having the likes of “Liz Cambage and Jenna O’Hea back home and on court for Melbourne, everyone needs to get in quick and secure their seats.”
“I honestly can’t remember anything as big as this during my time in and around the WNBL, it really is exciting to have some of the very best players on a global level right here in Melbourne, back with the Boomers Family.”
“All basketball supporters out there, in fact all sports fans wanting to come and see the very best players in action, you need to join up and become a member. This is our time, together, to rise and do something really special for women’s sport and the WNBL,” Lauren added.
The Boomers have signed eight players for the coming season, with seven players now announced. Joining Liz Cambage and Jenna O’Hea will be Bec Cole, Maddie Garrick, Britt Smart, Monique Conti and Bec Ott.
Season memberships start from just $39 for juniors and six-month payment plans are also available for the first time. To purchase memberships and join the Boomers Family, go to www.boomersmemberships.com.au
