Historical information
The C grade premiers of the V.G.B.B.A in 1927, no team name is given.
When Made
1927
Significance
The team photo does not have a team name, and the V.G.B.B.A may possibly be an acronym for Victorian Girls Basket Ball Association, just as the V.W.B.B.A is the Victorian Women's Basket Ball Association. Myrtle McLeod (nee Robinson) is in the team photo, she goes on to become a significant player in the 1930s in the Victorian state teams.
