The Torch at WNBL Indigenous Round

The Torch is proud to partner with the Deakin Melbourne Boomers for the Women’s National Basketball League Indigenous Round on Saturday March 19th. The WNBL’s inaugural Indigenous Round is an important date in the WNBL calendar, recognising and acknowledging Indigenous culture and people across Australia.

Players will be wearing playing singlets designed by an Indigenous artist from Deakin University’s NIKERI Institute. These will be auctioned online after the game with all proceeds going to The Torch. The Torch will also be exhibiting artworks from the program with all works available for purchase. 100% of the artwork price goes directly to the artist.
