For the inaugural occasion, the WBBL overseas signings will be established through a draft scheduled for September 3.
A comprehensive compilation of all nominated players is provided, with an indication of clubs for those qualifying for a retention pick*. A unique facet in the WBBL involves six players opting for a direct nomination path, enabling them to abstain from draft selection and directly join a club subsequently.
Should a player opt for this route and secure a direct contract with a team post-draft, their retainer cannot surpass 95% of the stipend allocated for a silver category player—equivalent to AU$61,750.
