GWBA – The Bigger, Better, Bolder Brand Of Women’s Basketball
The Global Women’s Basketball Association (GWBA) is a professional basketball league in North America, operating in the Midwestern region. The GWBA was established in 2016 by former James Madison University Women’s Basketball athlete Sonya Nichols of Chicago, Illinois. Per Sonya, “my motivation for starting this league was for players to have a quality and professional league post their collegiate tenure as an alternative to the WNBA. I also wanted to bridge the gap with international teams for an opportunity to compete against elite Women basketball players here in the United States.”
GWBA League President/Founder
Thank you for supporting the Global Women’s Basketball Association (GWBA); we are glad you’re here! The GWBA is a premiere professional women’s basketball league in North America that I established in 2016. The GWBA provides an opportunity for professional athletes to continue their passion and allow others to pursue a paid career beyond their collegiate success. We provide quality entertainment for fans, organizations, and athletes at the professional level domestically and internationally. Our mission is to create a bigger, bolder brand of women’s basketball for years to come, and this couldn’t be possible without your support.
Due to the limited roster spots in the WNBA, I started this league because of my love for the game and to give back to female athletes pursuing their dreams. In addition to the WNBA, the GWBA has the most competitive teams and players in the United States. It’s an honor to establish a league of this magnitude with so many great people.
On behalf of the GWBA to YOU, our fans, supporters, and partners, we value you, we appreciate you, and we look forward to seeing you at the games. Blessings.
