The Adelaide Thunderbirds are proactive in connecting with the wider South Australian community by attending as many functions, events and specially requested appearances as possible each year.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the sport of netball not being a full time profession our athletes are required to juggle careers, study, training, Netball SA, Commonwealth Games, personal and family commitments on a daily basis which limits their availability to attend all appearance requests.
We also have limited access to players at the following times of the year:
- National Netball League season weekends
- National Netball League season finals series
- Between August and December each year (off-season)
- Training nights within the season
- Commonwealth Games
We strive to achieve attendance at the majority of appearance requests but if your request is unsuccessful please understand due to the aforementioned reasons obtaining an athlete to attend your event or function may not be possible.
Requests must be made four weeks prior to the event taking place and must be paid upon receipt of invoice from Netball SA one week before the event. Appearance cancellations will incur an administration fee of $50. Please be patient with your request submission as we receive several requests daily and we will do our best to respond to you as promptly as possible.
