At the 49th Annual General Meeting for Basketball Ballarat, the Board of Basketball Ballarat proposed two current members as being worthy of being elected to Life Membership. They were Di Nevett and Peter Cunningham and both nominations were endorsed by the meeting by acclamation.
Peter has had a lifetime in basketball and following a successful playing career locally, his driving work has been in the coaching field, where his ability to understand and communicate the nuances of the game is second to none in Ballarat and many would argue it extends much further than that. He has taken great pride in developing a Junior along the pathway of Vic Country teams through to the SEABL and National stage.
Both members have displayed the highest level of dedicated service and commitment to the sport from their very junior years through to the present day. Both have been players, coaches and administrators and were warmly applauded when the announcements were made.
