Our Ambassadors

Tess Madgen - Melbourne Boomers & Australian Jayco Opals Basketballer


“I am really excited to be a part of the Our Sporting Life SA Magazine. The magazine is a great way to showcase sport in South Australia at all levels.

This is very close to me, as growing up in the Barossa Valley has helped shape the player and person I am today.

Sport is a huge part of growing up in the country. As a child I got to experience a number of them and following in my older brothers footsteps I chose basketball. Playing with the Eastern Mavericks in the ABA, SA Country and training at the South Australian Sports Institute really helped me develop as a player and was a big part of getting me to where I am today."
