THE 50TH Anniversary of the Deloraine Amateur Basketball Association was celebrated with a dinner on 30th April. Current President Shaun Donohue said “We currently have over 370 players this season.

Our roster is growing and we’ll soon need to consider

The 2015/16 season Grand Final saw some hotly contested games in both the Men’s and Women’s competitions.

The Committee have been really excited about the standard of competition.”
