Lakeside Lightning

The Lightning is our High-Performance Basketball Program at Lakeside.  It includes our Mens’ and Women’s State Basketball League teams, plus a junior program with boys and girls teams competing in the WA Basketball League (WABL), operated by Basketball WA.


At Lakeside we have a great community of Businesses, Families and Individuals whose financial support allows us to do what we do!  


Our Lightning SBL teams play their home games at the Lakeside Recreations Centre, during the SBL season which runs from March to August each year.  We’d love you to join us at our next game – check out more information about our teams and upcoming games, including our SBL season fixtures.


Our WABL teams start at U12s and go all the way up to U20s.  Each year our selection process starts in October, with all Lakeside Domestic Players welcome to trial for a place in a Lightning Team.  Selections are finalised in February, ready for the WABL season which runs from April until September each year. 


The Lightning has competed in the State Basketball League since the year 2000 and in this relatively short time, already has a rich history and has experienced significant success.
