With less than a month remaining until tip-off, the official fixture has been unveiled, and family and friends can now secure their tickets for the event, which is set to take place in Warwick, Western Australia from 1-9 July.
The Championship’s fixture will hold pool games from Saturday night to Thursday, with all the finals action kicking off on Friday, followed by medal matches to bring the nine-day event to a close on 9 July.
Saturday night in Western Australia will set the stage for an action-packed start to the event with a double-header on the schedule. In the girl's division, Western Australia Metro will face off against Australian Capital Territory, meanwhile, the Western Australia Metro boys will lock horns with Victoria Country.
