Player Signing – Adam Gibson- 2012 London Olympian, NBL championship, there isn’t much Adam hasn’t achieved in basketball. We are looking forward to him being a calming influence and leader for this team. An excellent role model both on and off the court he is always willing to give his time to fans of the game.
Player Signing – Tom Jervis – Will be the big man of the Spartans QBL Team. Great footwork, good touch around the basket and a great shot for a 5 man, Tommy is going to be hard to stop. Tom has vast NBL experience and also a multiple championship player with the Perth Wildcats.
With the return to the QBL by Southern Districts Basketball Association we have also introduced a first into the QBL with electronic ticketing. A new concept for QBL games and already the benefits have been seen. Over 41% of available tickets were issued online over a week in advance with people able to scan their phone or printed tickets at the door if they wish. The introduction has also resulted in visiting teams, officials, and guest being sent electronic tickets in advance. “We are moving with the times and trying to protect the environment at the same time by eventually going fully electronic” advised incoming General Manager Peter Foster. “It’s also great to see the technology in action and expecting large crowds this year we hope this will speed up the entry process so people can spend more time watching some great basketball instead of waiting to get in”
Tickets for all future games will be on sale this week on the Southern Districts Website.
