The Under 14 Gold Star Championships will be held at the Bendigo Stadium over three days next year from April 12-14, while the Under 16, U18 and U20 championships will be spread over two weekends on February 23-24 and March 16-17.
Over 5,000 people will visit Bendigo over the duration of the three tournaments, and all three will be staged in Bendigo again in 2014.
Bendigo Stadium Sports and Competitions manager Craig Green said winning the bidding process, that involved cities statewide, was a real battle.
"To win three of the four tenders was a terrific result, and to have the support of the City of Greater Bendigo played a crucial part in winning what is a very competitive bidding process,” Green said.
“It is not only good for the city economically speaking, but for junior basketball right around the Bendigo region, as it means teams like Maryborough and Castlemaine don’t have far to go to participate in the championships.” City of Greater Bendigo mayor Cr Alec Sandner was delighted with being awarded the tournaments.
“This announcement represents another sporting coup for the City of Greater Bendigo,” Cr Sandner said.
“We are certainly leading the way in major events, it’s going to be very exciting to see the state’s best junior basketballers on the Bendigo Stadium courts.”
