We also present a lifetime contribution award each year. This award recognises an individual’s contribution to Galway basketball. Previous recipients were Serge Bruzzi in 2011, Joe Naughton in 2012 , Maura Harte in 2013 and Gerry Nihill in 2014. To celebrate our 5th anniversary in 2015, we presented the first ever Galway Masters Hall of Fame Award to Deora Marsh. The hall of fame award will be presented every five years. The recipient of the 2016 lifetime contribution award was Joe Coughlan, 2017 was Joe Shields and 2018 Tony Burke. Our 2019 recipient was Roberto Saoner.
We have five divisions – Men’s 40s, 50s and 60s (60s introduced in 2017) and Ladies 40s & 50s (50s introduced in 2017). The 2019 tournament was expanded to 46 teams by introducing Friday games.
