The Suncoast Spinners Wheelchair Basketball Tournament has wrapped up for another year with many hotly-contested finals.
Feed the Heat (Brisbane) managed to claim top honours in the premier grade final after defeating Thundercats (Perth) 47-48.
That wasn’t the only tight finish in the competition, with Dream Team (Brisbane) winning A-grade 26-19 against the Thomoz Tomahawks.
Lismore took win in B-grade Grand final after a hotly contested game against the Suncoast Wheelies (A Suncoast Spinners Reverse Inclusion team) 18-17.
The competition featured plenty of national talent, including Australian Under 23 Spinners player Steven Elliott, who played for the Spinning Bullets.
His side finished the premier grade in third place and relished the challenge.
“I’ve been playing in the premier grade and we’ve got some of the Paralympians and up-and-comers who are hoping to go to worlds this year so it’s been crazy the amount of talent and some good games,” he said.
“This is probably one of the biggest tournaments in Australia.”
