Crowne Plaza Canberra is proud to continue its partnership with the University of Canberra Capitals for the 2017-18 Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL) season.

The University of Canberra Capitals have played in the WNBL since 1984 and have won seven Championships in that time.

As one of Canberra’s most recognisable sporting brands, the UC Capitals have a proud history of success on and off the court and are committed to establishing an elite program of continuous improvement.

“Partnering with such an established and admired brand as Crowne Plaza Canberra fits nicely with the values of the University of Canberra Capitals” said Matthew Phelps, General Manager, UC Capitals.

“We both take great pride in supporting the ACT region and providing a great experience to our customers. The UC Capitals are excited to work with the Crowne Plaza Canberra team and see a great future for our partnership.”
