After 17 years, the Ararat Redbacks are looking to rejoin the Country Basketball League.

Ararat Basketball Association President Donna Dunmore said it is an exciting prospect.

“We have a lot of talented juniors who have nowhere to go. It would be good for them to be able to play in this competition,” she said. 

Dunmore said she is hopeful for putting together a men’s team.

“We’ve had about eight boys who have been very successful playing in various tournaments,” she said.
