BQ, in conjunction with Queensland School Sport stages the Champion Basketball School of Queensland (CBSQ) tournaments each year.
With the Open event originating in 1974 the event attracts a great deal of interest from secondary schools across the state each year with over 120 boys and girls teams competing across several open-age divisions.
The winning team from each Boys & Girls Open Championship Division gains automatic entry into Basketball Australia’s Australian Schools Championships held each year in December.
Final positions in the tournament dictate promotion and relegation, as well as wildcard opportunities. From 2020, CBSQ will be open to both automatic qualifiers, as well as wildcard applications, allowing schools who have previously been relegated, or who have not previously competed to apply for a position in the competition.
In 2020 BQ introduced two further events; the CBSQ Junior Secondary (Year 7-10) and CBSQ Primary aimed at providing opportunities for schools to participate in the younger age groups.
In 2022 BQ will be splitting our CBSQ Junior Secondary Tournament to have not only the Junior Tournament (Year 9 & 10), but now a separate Sophomore Tournament (Year 7 & 8) also. After over 170 teams entered in the CBSQ Junior Tournament in 2021. BQ are donating 15 game balls to one lucky school this year.

Speedminton’s unique format evolved from a desire to play shuttle sports outdoors. It engaged social distancing by design, well before this term became a way of life. Whilst official Speedminton match courts are 12 metres apart, shifting racket sport learning to the school oval lifted constraints from students developing the fundamental striking movement. 
Students have the space and time to learn how to hit and to swing a racket with effect, at their own pace. Eliminating the fear of error or point loss, instils a freedom of movement. Spreading from a court to open spaces invites imaginative game creation and skill challenges, for both individuals and groups. It is particularly effective with junior students, where the mechanics of setting up drills becomes simpler, safer and achieves high levels of participation. Combined with the user-friendly nature of the equipment, this free-style play has produced outstanding racket sport outcomes in over 3500 Australian schools. Speedminton delivers a safe, compliant and easily supervised racket sport activity, with games and drills for all age, skill and enthusiasm levels. Contact Geoff Bannister for more information and a special ACHPER HPE WEEK Speedminton Ten Racket Intro Offer. Speedminton are donating three fantastic prize packs to three of this year's HPE Week participants.

Tenpin Bowling Association of QLD has a variety of opportunities for schools and school students to get involved in Tenpin Bowling.
