Established in 2013, the Westside Suns are a rapidly growing club that compete in the local Westgate Basketball Association Saturday domestic competition. The club was established by a number of parents who sought for their children to play in the newly established competition.
In the early days, the club registered teams made up of a number of monikers including the Ardeer Angels, Ardeer Devils, Bullets, Devils, Eagles, Excel Knights, Kings, Lakers, Magic Eagles, Purple Magic, Raiders, Sonics, Suns and Wolves.
Over time, three monikers became most common across the club - Eagles, Kings and Suns. At the commencement of the Summer 18/19 Season, the club committee endorsed a proposal to move forward under one moniker, the Westside Suns, to be gradually implemented over two calendar years. ,
Since then, the club has grown significantly to field over 77 teams in the Winter 2020 season, with 71 teams being registered as the Westside Suns. The club has entered teams into every group and division, which includes U10, U12, U14 and U16 Boys and Girls, as well as U18 and U21 boys.
The growth of our club has only been achievable through the hard work of all the clubs volunteers who have given their time over the last seven years to help deliver such an amazing outcome.
