Meet Adelaide Thunderbirds members… the Yardley family

An Adelaide Thunderbirds home game is a family outing for the Yardley family.

The 2018 season marks the third time Amee, her husband Lincoln and their two daughters, Jorja and Payton, will be Adelaide Thunderbirds members.

“The girls love going to the games,” Amee said. “They like picking their favourite Adelaide Thunderbirds players and spending time in the Fan Village before the game.

“The four of us enjoy using game day as a great family outing. But if one of us can’t make it, we can always find someone else to come along – our girls love it when they can bring a friend.”

The Yardley family have upgraded their seats for this season, now sitting in the West Stand behind the team benches.

“The kids have always said it would be cool to change our seats and watch the game from another angle, so for this season we did and they’re pretty excited,” Amee said.

On top of the game-day action, Amee said the discounted car parking that comes with the membership is really handy and the girls love the merchandise that comes in the pack.

“The netball and drink bottle from this year’s pack is sure to be a hit,” she said.

Netball is a large part of the family’s life with both girls playing for Onkaparinga Netball Club with Jorja in 13U and Payton in 9U.

“Through NetSetGO and the Onkaparinga Netball Club, the girls have had some awesome experiences,” she said.

“A few years ago, Jorja went on court at Priceline Stadium during the half-time break of an Adelaide Thunderbirds game and played netball, and at the 2017 Constellation Cup at Titanium Arena, Payton had the same opportunity, with the inclusion of being on TV for the National Anthem. That was a huge proud parent moment,” Amee said.
