Bendigo Stadium is a true Sports Hub. As the home of the Bendigo Bank Spirit, Bendigo Braves and Bendigo Basketball Association, there is no bigger place for basketball in regional Victoria. Bendigo Stadium also plays host to the Bendigo Volleyball Association along with a plethora of other sports and recreational activities.
The Bendigo Spirit became the ninth WNBL club following its approval for entry into the 2007/08 season. As the third Victorian based team, the Spirit is based in the regional city of Bendigo.
