The Women’s British Basketball League (WBBL) is delighted to announce the WBBL Championship fixtures for the forthcoming 2016-17 campaign.
The curtain will be raised for WBBL league action on Saturday 08 October, with these first round of Championship games to be played after the season opening Betty Codona Classic, which will take place across the first weekend of October.
In what will be only the third ever WBBL campaign, the regular season will come to a close on Sunday 23 April, prior to the top eight teams fighting it out to make the 2017 WBBL Play-Off Final at The O2 in London.
This season sees the introduction of two new WBBL franchises in Oaklands Wolves and Basketball Scotland, while there is also the introduction of an exciting new WBBL Cup competition.
Throughout the season, a total of 32 WBBL and BBL games will be broadcast live on BBC Sport in a schedule that will not only cover a number of Championship clashes, but all three British Basketball Finals days for the WBBL and BBL Cup, Trophy and Play-Offs.
