Girl sues Basketball Queensland over injury on slippery court

A YOUNG basketball player, whose hopes of playing in future Australian or European league games were shattered when she was injured on a slippery court, is suing Basketball Queensland.

Peri Ewin, 21, played in a Brisbane Capitals women’s basketball team in a Queensland Basketball League competition game against Bundaberg Bears in 2012.

Her claim says during a pre-game warm-up, Brisbane Capitals team members complained to a manager and coaches that the Bundaberg stadium court surface was slippery and hazardous.

The coaches spoke to the Bundaberg Bears’ coach, who said he had cleaned the court surface that afternoon, and referees ruled the court was suitable for playing, it is alleged.
