A sporting family like no other

DOMINOES Basketball Club recently held its trophy presentation and end of season function at Rosny Bowls Club.

The event was attended by players, family, community members and Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman.

The trophy presentation night was a celebration of club history, all players, the 2018 season, and the club’s community achievements.

Dominoes Basketball Club was founded locally in 1972, and has had a strong family culture throughout its history.

Ivan King, president of the Dominoes Basketball Club, said the family values of the club were what would continue to give it longevity.

“Dominoes Basketball Club is something that will extend itself through to the next couple of generations,” he said.

“The club has and will continue to evolve through families established on the Eastern Shore.

“The culture of the club comes from children who have played with the club, grown up to become coaches at the club, then become parents themselves and have their children play at the club.”

The club remains an active part of the Eastern Shore community, and has recently solidified this.

It applied for a Clarence City Council community grant and received $1000 which was used to purchase a gazebo.

Mr King said the gazebo had been built as a venue for future fundraising and was a great way to have Dominoes Basketball Club grounded in the community.

“The gazebo represents who we are, what our culture is and what we endeavour to do.”

The gazebo has already been utilised for a Dominoes event.

Dominoes is always looking for new players from all age groups.
