Barossa Basketball Association legend, John Kurtz.

The godfather of basketball in the region, John Kurtz has been inducted into the Barossa Valley Amateur Basketball Association’s Hall of Fame and named a Legend at the association’s 50 year celebrations on Saturday night.

The event brought together officials and players, both past and present, in a night of nights for the Association and cemented such celebration, the first of its kind, into the events calendar for the future.

In inducting a number of people into the Hall of Fame, the Association also recognised six individuals with life membership on the night.
