Do you want to play State League?

Posted on August 3, 2018 in , ,


It’s time to “test the waters” regarding our ambition to establish a Taree Tornadoes Men’s State League Team.

Update on where we stand:

  • Basketball NSW are very supportive & excited about our intention to play;
  • Taree Basketball Committee is obviously very supportive;
  • We have BLF (Big Lonnie Funderburke) ready to go;
  • Whilst a visit to our stadium by BNSW still needs to happen, we believe we can host home games;
  • Bench officials and referees for all games will be a very important factor to be addressed;


But the big question is – can we pull a team together??

If you are keen to play or try out or discuss playing, please let us know.  We are going to start having a scrimmage on a Monday night, 6:30 @ our stadium so get there if you can. All are welcome, if you want to scrimmage at that level, pitch up!


Formal training wouldn’t start until later in the year – but we need to know if we can do this as soon as possible.

Part of our preparations could include fielding this squad at the Grafton Jacaranda Tournament – we can discuss Monday evening.
