Hi Malvern Tigers players and extended community,
What an incredible start to the Summer season! The Club had the most girls and boys players ever – with 39 and 49 teams respectively (that’s 685 players!). Truly an incredible achievement for our domestic basketball club.
Sadly, we find ourselves in unprecedented times and our season cut short. However, it has been pleasing to see so many of our teams finish at or near the top of their sections!! Well done to all of our players.
As we are a Club that is run by a large group of volunteers, a few paid coaches and support staff, I would like to say thank you to our Team Managers, AGCs, Coaches and Executive Committee members. It takes all of us to field this Club.

While the Club is unable to arrange a larger event, we do encourage teams to gather to celebrate the Summer 19 season, and for coaches to hand out their Coaches Awards.
Congratulations also to players that have achieved milestones of 100, 200, 300 and especially 400 games for the Malvern Tigers! The complete list of players making these milestones this season is posted on our website:

Winter 2020 update
Waverley Basketball Association has confirmed that they are currently preparing for the Winter 2020 season. We have also continued with our own preparations – teams have been selected, and team sheets will be distributed to members before the Term 1 school holidays. SlamStyle is also on track to start delivery of new uniforms.
We have registered 35 Girls and 41 Juniors teams to compete in the Winter 2020 competition. While it is likely that the season start will be delayed because of COVID-19, the Club want to be ready to “go” as soon as Basketball Victoria and WBA decide to recommence basketball.
In the event that the Winter 2020 season is shortened, or in the worst case cancelled, the Club will provide registered members with the option for their Malvern Tigers membership fee to be either refunded (in part or whole) or carried over as a credit to pay for the 2020/21 Summer Season. As a not-for-profit organisation, the Club will ensure memberships fees are appropriately returned as a refund or credit.
