Bravus Mining and Resources and Rockhampton Basketball Inc will be shooting a perfect six from six following an extension of their Major Partnership agreement through to 2024.
Bravus Mining and Resources Community Manager Ally Foley said the company was delighted to be able to continue its support of Rocky’s basketball family on, and off, the court.
Ms Foley said alongside encouraging grassroots engagement, the agreement will see the home of Rockhampton Basketball remain as Bravus Arena to provide a high-quality venue for all levels of competition as well as non-basketball not-for-profit and community-run events.
“Our local team members are big fans of Rocky basketball, whether that’s getting on the court themselves, watching their kids play, or cheering the Rockets and Cyclones on from the stands,” she said.
“We’re also big fans of the work Rockhampton Basketball does to foster fun, wellbeing, teamwork, and sense of community that aligns so perfectly with our values.
“Rocky remains an integral part of who we are now that our Carmichael mine is in operations, and we’re delighted to sign on again with an organisation that delivers such broad benefit to our community.”
Rockhampton Basketball Inc General Manager Wade Rebetzke said the partnership renewal was a significant momentum boost ahead of the city hosting the Basketball Queensland State Championships both this year and in 2024.
“The facilities and opportunities we can offer our athletes thanks to partners like Bravus Mining and Resources are fundamental to why Rockhampton Basketball continues to grow locally and perform nationally,” he said.
“We’re proud to have the Bravus brand feature on the home of Rocky basketball for at least another two years and thank them for their enormous support of our organisation and region.”
