In what has been a very challenging year, we also received the sad news with the passing of NSWTA and Sydney Scorpions Life Member Gary Croft. Gary’s memory will live fondly in the hearts and minds of all within our region and beyond.

A highlight of the year was the NTL Scorpions Dinner in March 2020, where our two All Abilities teams attended enjoying the evening and the spot-light attention.  The night was also highlighted by the addition of three Hall of Fame inductees plus the newly introduced Heath Cooper Medal for 20 years Playing Service.
