Corpus Christi Basketball Club is a proud member of the Wyndham Community and was founded in 1993 by Gary Kennedy. Commencing with three female team’s, the club has grown substantially over the years and we are now is one of the largest clubs participating in the Wyndham Basketball Association.
There have been many individuals that have played critical roles in the growth and development of Corpus and we are forever in debt of these tireless volunteers who helped to craft the club into the organisation we are today. Some of these inspirational figures have been recognised with life membership of the club, but without the support of hundreds of coaches, team managers, committee members, volunteers, players and parents/guardians we would not be in the position we are in.
Corpus is run by a passionate and energetic committee, who continue to go above and beyond. We continue to evolve as a club and in 2018 expanded our committee, adding the new roles of; Diversity Coordinator, Grants Coordination, Sponsorship Coordinator, Coach Coordinator and Events Coordinator to our structure. We also launched our Community Fund, allowing us to provide opportunities for disadvantaged individuals to gain sponsorship for fee’s/equipment to participate in basketball by us removing barriers to participation.
Since 2016, Basketball has experienced phenomenal growth which has seen Corpus grow from 19 teams to over 70 teams, ranging from Under 8’s through to the Premier Women’s competition. We now cater for elite to beginner players in all age groups and have the highest female participants in the Wyndham Basketball competition.
In 2019 Corpus were crowned the “WBA Club of the Year” at the Annual Wyndham Basketball Association Awards, which is an award that everyone involved with the club over the journey can be extremely proud of.
We continue to work on development opportunities for our coaches/players/administrators and Corpus look forward to continuing our evolution and be the destination club in Wyndham, that can provide opportunities for all skill levels and abilities.
