Basketball NSW are saddened to announce that Life Member Peter Yeend passed away last Friday the 1st May aged 83.
Peter was the 15th Life Member of Basketball NSW awarded this honour in 1982.

In 1957 Peter’s representation of the Orange ABA at State Council meetings led to his election as Convenor of the State’s Standing Committee Junior and the organisation of the National under eighteen and under sixteen men’s championships held in Sydney in 1957. Peter Yeend completely reorganised the role of the Junior Men’s Committee, as it became, drawing in talent and putting talent into administration in each person’s area of interest. Bob Staunton and Les Gough were two whose first State administration job was with the Junior Men’s Committee. Another talent was Denis Spillane whose ability to organise saw him manage many State Junior Men’s Teams.
