The initial grading phase by Waverley Basketball is now complete (the first 5 games). Your fixture will be available soon for the rest of the season. Please note however that Waverley will continue to move teams within the next 2 rounds (Sunday 25th Nov).


All players are recommended to wear a mouthguard for games and training.  Scorpions have partnered with Ashburton Family Dental to provide a professional but discounted custom made mouthguard, ready for the beginning of every new season.  Check back here for dates for fitting prior to the start of a new season (Summer Season 2018/19 took place September 10th).
