Refs The Word - 400 Game for Wayne Maidment

Wayne commenced officiating in the ABA on September 5, 1987 when he called the Woodville Warriors _ Adelaide Buffalos game with Ean Turner (deceased)

On Saturday July 26 Wayne will officiate his 400th ABA game having already done 322 men’s and 77 women’s games.

Wayne’s 400 games includes more than 10 Grand Finals in the CABL and 2 Grand Finals in the SEABL(1995 & 1997).

Wayne has also been the recipient of the Phil Yuill Memorial Trophy as Referee of the Year in the CABL

In addition to Wayne’s ABA career, he officiated in the NBL and WNBL from 1992-1999.

In 1989 Wayne was the State Dux of NBL/ABF Referee Scholarship Programme and was awarded Life Membership of BASA in 1996.

While acknowledging Wayne’s achievement we should also recognize the support of Debbie his wife of 23 years, and certainly before they started their family, was his best critic.

Congratulations to Wayne.
We'd like to include Wayne in our Grassroots Greats website we're putting together, if that's alright with you?
