Share this article

After nearly a year off-the-court Gemma Potter will make her basketball return with our Senior Dandenong Women, re-signing for the upcoming NBL1 South season.

Gemma’s 2021 campaign was cut short after tearing her ACL at the U20 National Championships, sidelining her after just two road games with our Ranger Women. Healthy and now ready to make her home debut, Gemma can’t wait to get through the last few weeks of preseason and return to full-fledged NBL1 South competititon.

“It’s been 11 months (since her injury) on the 14th of this month, that extended amount of time away from that game I’ve grown up with has really challenged me both as a person and a player,” said Potter. “I’m really excited to be getting back on the court with the girls, my body is feeling good and we’ve only got a few more weeks until Round 1. Numbers are fully back up at training so we’ve been able to get through our stuff and really prepare for the season.”

Our NBL1 Dandenong Rangers will make their 2022 debut on Saturday April 22nd in a road outing against Frankston followed by a huge home opener against the NBL1-debuting Casey Cavaliers. Getting to play in big, rivalry clashes like these is exactly what Gemma has missed over the past few seasons as she and her teammates prepare for what is hopefully a lockdown and injury-free season ahead.

“This season my goals are definitely to win, I know last season was a bit disappointing with all the lockdowns and not being able to fulfill what we knew we were capable of,” said Potter. “This season, if we can play good basketball, I think we have a great chance of winning (the NBL1 South title).”

A huge signing to kickoff what’s sure to be a thrilling NBL1 2022 campaign! Stay tuned for more updates and signing announcements in the coming days as we begin the countdown to our NBL1 South Home Opener on Sunday April 23rd.
