|Roopena Basketball club Formed in winter season 2016, the first new club in over 30 years to come into the WBA|
Founded by Julian Kovacic and Ruth Rowlands Roopena’s inception was inspired by dissolution with the existing structure at the time which was dominated by the 3 largest clubs of this era.
There hunch was right as players flocked to the new club looking for fresh start. Amazingly in just their 2nd season in the competition Roo’s took out the Men’s and Women’s A grade double a feat not achieved by any club since Wildcats in 2010. They repeated this achievement the following Summer.
In their short history they have quickly grown to be one of the biggest clubs in the WBA.
