19th January 2016

We are delighted to announce the details of the Hula Hoops Irish Wheelchair Basketball National Cup Final to be run as part of the Basketball Ireland Hula Hoops Cup Final weekend at the end of January.

Ballybrack Bulls will face Limerick Scorpions in the inaugural final which is one of 11 National Cup Finals sponsored by hula Hoops to be played on the same weekend.

  • Date 29th January
  • Tip off time 6pm
  • Admission  €10 per adult €5 per child (contact IWA-Sport for concessions)
  • Venue National Basketball Arena, Tallaght
  • Ballybrack Bulls V Limerick Scorpions

The inclusion of the IWA-Sport Cup Final in the Basketball Ireland Finals programme is a hugely positive development in terms of raising the profile of the ‘wheelchair’ game in Ireland. Wheelchair Basketball has grown from strength to strength in recent years and it is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the game among the Irish basketball community and the sporting public in general.

That being said there is a Cup Final to be won and both teams will want their names to feature on the inaugural silver ware. Scorpions will go into the Final as hot favourites but the Bulls have the ability to record a shock win.
