BASKETBALL, WOMEN'S OUTDOOR
New Zealand Basketball Association
Women's Basketball is controlled by the Council of the New Zealand Basketball Association, which meets once a year, and a New Zealand Executive, of six members, which meets more frequently. Local basketball fixtures are organised by the district associations, or sub-associations, to which local teams are affiliated. In the 1963 season there were 35 district associations (including 73 affiliated sub-associations), and 3,570 teams–or 24,990 girls playing basketball regularly.
In 1935 a new body, the New Zealand Basketball Referees' Association, took over the functions of the Rules Committee of the New Zealand Basketball Association. The N.Z.B.R.A. also has a special Board of Examiners for referees.
