The sport of basketball continues to rise in South Australia, and as an Adelaide based company we are proud to be working with local clubs to promote the sport. As a result of our hard work, high quality gear and reputation among the associations. Blackchrome has proven to be a company that teams can trust, and we look forward to continuing those strong bonds and relationships.
Sturt Sabres are the first basketball club we have partnered with, and we are their Major Sponsor and Exclusive Supplier of all apparel items. Sturt has been seen as a breeding ground of talented basketball players, with many continuing their careers in the NBL, WNBL and in various locations overseas. We had a chat with Phil Blake, club president, to find out more about the club and their thoughts on partnering with Blackchrome.

Do you think it’s important that athletes wear the right gear?
“Players need to feel comfortable so they can concentrate on performance without being distracted by ill-fitting or poor-quality equipment.”
What are your thoughts on the partnership with Blackchrome?
“Sturt Sabres are looking at ways to grow our partnership with Blackchrome to optimise the outcomes for both parties. Our members have used Blackchrome equipment both interstate and in New Zealand at the World Masters Games. The quality of merchandise and the fact that the Blackchrome staff are keen to understand our requirements and ensure that those requirements are fulfilled.”
With the start of the Premier League season approaching, Sturt are hoping to have their men’s and women’s teams at the top. To get there they need to put in the best performances they can.
