The management of Hapoel Lev Jerusalem, the newly-promoted team Athena Winner League, the Women’s Premier Basketball League, announced on Thursday that the Malha Arena in Jerusalem has been chosen to be the team’s home court for the upcoming season. The team also confirmed that its roster of 12 players for the season is now complete, with 10 Israeli players and two foreign players in coach Limor Peleg’s team.

“We are ready for the Premier League, we have a hall for games, an excellent roster, a great coach and also the supporting surrounding for the players, Dr Netta Abugov, Hapoel Lev Jerusalem’s Chairwoman, said. “Y’alla, Hapoel!”
“I was very happy to hear that the Jerusalem Municipality is indeed working and taking care of women’s sports in the city and this coming season we will be playing in the municipal Malha Arena, a court with a magnificent basketball history. We are at the beginning of a fascinating and challenging season. The roster of players for the upcoming season includes a combination of foreign players, the most senior players in the Premier League and the talented Jerusalem girls who grew up at the club. I believe that this team, under the leadership of coach Limor Peleg and professional director Rebecca Ross, will lead us to Jerusalem’s rightful place at the top of the Premier League in basketball.”
