Your View: Basketball history

I AM very pleased to announce I have started researching history of the Southern Yorke Peninsula Basketball Association, 1959 to 2019.

My ultimate intention is to write a comprehensive book about the association and raise enough money for various honour boards for the SYP basketball stadium and a donation to the beyondblue charity.

Therefore, I am seeking the assistance of past and present members for information and memorabilia. Everyone assisting in anyway will be acknowledged in the book.

Immediate questions I have are: When did the Port Victoria club start? When did the Port Vincent and Corny Point clubs opt out of the competition? Who was the 1975-76 A men best and fairest?

I would also like to recognise anybody who has had 20 or more years involvement with the association.

I welcome photos, paper cuttings, funny stories, statistics, club information, et cetera.

My contact details are email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., phone 0427 205 370, or mailing address 198/462 Beams Road, Fittzgibbon, Queensland, 4018.
