New CQ basketball season almost set

BASKETBALL: Bundaberg's Bears and Bulls could be back in action in May in the Central Queensland Basketball League.

The delegates for the competition met on Saturday to finalise the league with it expected to start on May 6 and the round robin matches finishing in August.

The competition will see Hervey Bay, Gympie and Gladstone join Bundy in home and away matches.

Finals would then be held between the top four teams in the men's and women's competition.

Maryborough, despite saying they would enter in 2019, are trying to find teams to compete in the competition this year.

The competition structure will now be sent to Basketball Queensland to be ratified before it can begin.

There will be more when it happens in the NewsMail.
