After two false starts due to Covid, enteries for the first ever Heartland Tournament for domestic teams are open.

The South East Melbourne Phoenix is proudly supporting the tournament that will take place across the South East on Melbourne Cup weekend.

The tournament will be run by the Knox, Kilsyth and Frankston basketball associations and give domestic clubs across the South East the opportunity to play like their Heartland Heroes in a tournament style weekend.

There will be different age groups and grades, allowing players of all abilities to get involved and enjoy the unique experience of travelling together, spending time with friends and competing with teams across the Heartland.

Phoenix CEO Tommy Greer says the club didn’t hesitate to throw their support behind the exciting idea.

“A significant section of our supporters young and old are involved in domestic teams whether playing or helping out across South East Melbourne, so it was an easy decision to get behind the inaugural Heartland Tournament,” he said.

“A lot of kids don’t get the opportunity to play in fun tournament-style competitions, which we believe is a great way to bring the community together and form stronger bonds within domestic clubs.

“We look forward to being a visible presence at the event and inspiring the next generation of Phoenix stars in what we see as a long-term addition to the Heartland basketball calendar.”

The tournament will have a carnival atmosphere with a range of activities at each of the host venues to keep everyone entertained whether playing or not.

Registrations are now open.
