Women's Indoor Basketball ..

Women's Indoor Basketball ...

This year, for the first time, Women's Indoor Basketball is officially included in Tournament. Due to the fact that Tournament is being held during term time, V.U.C. will be sending a weakened, but very keen, team.

The following are the players who will represent Victoria:—
  • Elaine Foote and Ysabel Corkill—both prominent in outdoor basketball and new to indoor: have played well in interclub competitions this year and are promising shoots.
  • Judith Kilsby: Also an outdoor player now to indoor. Uses her height to advantage in the rear court.
  • Vivienne Fleming: Also new to indoor. Was unfortunate to put her knee out but will be fit enough and should benefit from the play at tournament.
  • Shirley Thomson: Also new to indoor is fast and intercepts well.
  • Judith Allanff: Also new to indoor. Should pull her weight in the forward court.
  • Beryl Hargreaves: New to indoor basketball—is a keen player.
  • June Lee: Has played indoor before, but due to an injury to her knee has not play much this season.
  • Diana Sutcliffe: Played in tournament 1951. Her experience should be a great help to the team.
  • Lilian Gracey: An outdoor player, new to indoor, is dominant in the rear court.

It is a pity that Victoria cannot send more players with tournament experience, but this team is capable of surprises.
