Perth’s premier Christian basketball competition.

PCBL started out over 40 years ago as the Western Australian Baptist Basketball Competition and has recently been rebranded to reflect the wide variety of churches that we have participating in the competition. With Juniors, Mixed and Seniors there is a competition for everyone. Whether you are a church that is looking at strengthening your congregation’s fellowship and community or you are looking at reaching out to the community PCBL is the competition for you.

Due to the shortened season, we have relaxed the normal requirement for all teams that are participating in PCBL need to be signed off by a Perth Christian Church or Christian School. This will be in effect for the 2021 season.

PCBL runs at Lakeside on Saturdays over Winter with this season being a shortened season due to the COVID shutdown. This season will start on the 20th June and finishing late September.
