The WikiProject Australian basketball is a project to organise and improve information about basketball in Australia, especially the National Basketball League.

Articles maintained by this WikiProject are grouped in Category:WikiProject Australian basketball articles by using the basketball=yes parameter within the {{WikiProject Australia}} template.

Usage: {{WikiProject Australia|basketball=yes}}


The National Basketball League is Australia's prime basketball competition. This project aims to:

  • Create profiles on all players, including player boxes seen in other WikiProjects on sport
  • Get pictures for all current players
  • Get a good amount of information on players and coaches
  • Make results pages from the last few seasons
  • Make profiles on all venues that basketball games are played at, and include a stadium box like the one on the Telstra Dome article
  • Work on getting more information on all current clubs

Ladders etc.[edit]

OK, ive got in contact with the NBL and they are happy to help out. They will be sending me a media guide next week some time, which has got all the end of season ladders, plus every player ever to play in the NBL.

2006/07 season[edit]

This page is for the up and coming NBL season. Click here to enter it. This is a place where people can place all the results from the weekend in, as well as top scorers. I would like to get something up on running where we can put all of this information table form, as seen in WikiProject AFL.

Player boxes[edit]

Hello again. I tried using a NBA player box on Brett Maher. Now I don't particually like this look but I must say it looks good with a picture. If we never get a player box of our own, I believe we should use this one. Of course, we need more information on each player, as I'm mainly showing off the box. Any thoughts?


I think that we should create the National Basketball League (Australia) Portal. Now I have no prefence experience of making portals, so i would like either for someone to help me make it, or to just do it. Thanks guys.


Can people please start to advertise this page so that we are able to get more members. At the moment, I don't think that 10 members is enough for what I wish to do. Please also get started on the player pages.


What is NBL[edit]

The National Basketball League (NBL) is Australia's highest level of professional men's basketball. Two games per week are televised on Foxtel, one on Wednesday and one on Saturday, and sometimes one on late friday night if a game is played over in New Zealand.
