Attention players and player agents

The South Adelaide Basketball Club have become aware of the illegal use of its name and the name of the Clubs Vice President on player contracts being sent to unsuspecting players and player agents outside Australia.

All contracts from South Adelaide Basketball Club directed to players outside Australia will come directly from the Vice President (Seniors) email address that can be found on the Clubs webpage.

It is not the Clubs policy to ask for money from any overseas player so please take care when first receiving these scam contracts.

Should you have any concerns over the legitimacy of a contract you have been offered please email the Vice President (Seniors).
