Frankston Basketball is pleased to announce it has been successfully awarded the Victorian Junior Basketball League's prestigious U/18 Boys & Girls National Junior Classic.

The 'Classic' will see the best representative club sides across Australia descend on Frankston to compete for a chance to be recognised as the Nation's best at the U18 age group.

Frankston Basketball CEO Nathan Jolly said being involved in this year's Classic is a great opportunity for the association and one which everyone involved should be very proud of.

"Frankston Basketball is extremely honoured to be selected as host facility of the VJBL Junior Classic and we look forward to welcoming Australia's best U18 club teams to our community. I especially would like to thank John Hilton and his team at the VJBL for this opportunity. Along with the Big V tournament (which Frankston Basketball will be hosting over the March Labour Day weekend), the Classic is a key event on Australia's basketball calendar which we can't wait to be part of in 2014" Jolly said.
