Congratulations to Division Premiers The Nuts (Div 1) and Brothers (Div 2), as well as to the winners of Individual Awards in the category Best & Fairest Female, 1st season player Jamie Waterland with 17 votes (while only having played the first 9 rounds) and Best & Fairest Male Mitchell Blackburn with 20 votes. The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season. The Most Improved Player awards were awarded by the Board to Ellie Bucher (Sharks) and Sam Christiansen (Brothers) for having noticeably improved this season and having made valuable contributions to their respective teams. The achievements of this season’s 3 top scorers, Tony Edmondson (The Nuts) 286 and tied for second Jamie Waterland (The Nuts) and Phillip Wells (Sharks) with 238, were also highlighted.

The contributions of duty teams and umpires were once more recognised and a big thank you went out to Sylvester for his continuing efforts in setting up the equipment each week and Andrew for providing us with game highlights on Facebook all season. We were fortunate again this season to have 8 (reasonably) solid teams with a thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, the Board for keeping the competition running smoothly, THAC for providing us with the equipment and the opportunity to play and lastly Jose, for once again providing us with a great spread of nibbles & drinks last night.

After next week’s break, up next is the Social roster where existing and new players mix it up for 3 Thursdays for a bit of fun an to enable those interested to try water basketball for the first time. The Social Roster is scheduled for 25 June, 2 July and 9 July. Flyers will go up soon and will be made available on the website soon. To register for the Social Roster, submit your name, email and mobile number, plus any specifics we may need to know about, through our enquiry form.

To assist in planning, it would also be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether their team will continue to play next regular season, which starts on 23 July. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with John whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better. Closer to the start (17 July at the latest) captains should submit their team sheets to Kath and myself, so we can get the stats & scoresheet side of things organised.

Thank you all for another great season!

About Water Basketball Tasmania
Water Basketball is a sport developed by The Hobart Aquatic Centre. It involves two teams of 6 players, who pass the ball down the pool to their goal end, which is a hoop similar to basketball. Each player wears flippers (and a cap to identify which team they are playing for). Goals are scored as two or three points depending how far from the goals you are.
