Last night Basketball SA and the Premier League hosted the 2018 Halls Woollacott Awards evening at the Stamford Grand in Glenelg.

The 2018 event welcomed 280 Premier League players, referees, score table officials, club admin, and special guests including Basketball SA Commission members and past Legends of our sport. 

The evening, previously held last year as a luncheon, was hosted in the Stamford Grand Adelaide Ballroom and saw attendees enjoy a night of celebrating the 2018 Premier League season that was. 

Thank you to Brett Maher, our wonderful MC for the evening, Allan Browne the great voice of the roving mic, and to the many helpers behind the scenes who helped put together a great night of celebration. 

Basketball SA wishes to congratulate all award winners for the evening and make a special thank you to our amazing special guest presenters for joining us to present our local and international Premier League talent with these accolades.
