Playing for a club comes with many benefits. Aside from helping new players find teams, organising team coaches, managers and uniforms, Clubs are a great way to form friendships and a sense of belonging.

Clubs are a great way to become involved and remain active in basketball and where we find the company of like-minded people and share experiences. Valuable social networks develop through clubs and sport.

Exciting changes are on the horizon as we embark on a journey towards a club-based model, set to unfold in 2025 with groundwork starting in 2024.

At The Bendigo Bank Eastern Suns, we’re all about fostering a sense of community and belonging. Our shift to a club-based model in 2025 is designed to bring us closer together, creating a space where every member plays a vital role.

We want this transition to be seamless and purposeful. By choosing 2025, we ensure that we have ample time to plan thoughtfully and communicate effectively, involving each member of our community in the process.

The Bendigo Bank Eastern Suns is not just a basketball club; it’s a community. Be part of this exciting transformation and let’s build a future where unity and shared experiences take center stage.

Stay connected for updates, events, and opportunities as we move forward, hand in hand, into a new era of the Eastern Suns!
