Thank you to everyone who attended, your support is invaluable!

Last month, the Co Chair of the Awards and History Committee, Geoff Weeks, had the pleasure of presenting Terry Jones of the South Adelaide Basketball Club with a Basketball SA Award of Merit.

For the first time in South Australia, 3×3 Pro Hustle went beachside, with NBL 3x3Hustle, and the City of Holdfast Bay hosting Australia’s finest 3×3 ballers from Saturday, May 28 to Sunday, May 29. 

A fantastic event that saw plenty of familiar faces from our local competitions! It was fantastic to see a huge crowd get down and support the teams despite chilly weather!

From June 30 to July 4, Australia, Japan, China and Chinese Taipei will compete over six games including two doubleheaders, in what will be the third qualifying window. It’s anticipated that up to 36,500 fans will attend the series over four days.

The Boomers will take on China on 30 June, then Japan on 1 July, followed by another game against China on 3 July.

The June schedule means there is potential for Australian players currently overseas, to return home to play in the series in front of a home crowd. Boomers’ Head Coach Brian Goorjian has committed to the games and is keen to enlist as many members as possible from his Tokyo 2020 bronze medal-winning team.
