STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO ADELAIDE ADVERTISER ARTICLE (26/12/2020)

Posted in: Newsletters

The VAL is one of the strongest professional leagues in Australia with a successful handicapping system that has measures and checks for consistent and inconsistent performances.

The VAL have a great community of dedicated officials, coaches and athletes and we are pleased that the 2020-21 season has commenced.

Athlete Tom Sclanders is a South Australian resident, not Victorian as stated in the article and the reference to Victorians being cheats and having a “dyed in the wool mentality” is offensive and unnecessary.

Good luck to all Victorian athletes competing at The Bay Sheffield.
