The WUBA is BACK!!

by David Walls

The Women's Universal Basketball Association (WUBA) has returned after a 4-year hiatus.  The professional minor league was regarded as the best in the country for 6 seasons (2010-2016) where it had developed successful partnerships with the Atlanta Dream of the WNBA from 2014-16.  

The League was founded by Trinity United LLC; the same company that owns the Universal Basketball Association (UBA).  On Sunday, April 26, 2020, Trinity United sold majority rights of the league to Christy Luxe of Atlanta, GA.  She is the current owner of the Southern Conference of the UBA, and now the WUBA.  

"It was a situation I had to jump on," said Christy.  "What these guys have created for the women was nothing short of amazing.  Partnering with the WNBA, being the first women's league in Slam Magazine, and sending so many young ladies to the next level touched my heart.  We had to bring that back."

From 2010-2016, the WUBA ranked #1 in news as the top league in delivering talent to the next level.  In a 6-year window, the WUBA signed over 250 players to professional teams throughout Europe.  

The league is looking to kick off in the fall of 2020 and will be broken into two stages.  From October - December the WUBA will play its National League season, and from May - July the league will play its Super League season for all returning international players.  National tryouts will be announced July 7, 2020.
