A highly experienced sports physiotherapist with a passion for basketball, Steve Evans was one of the founders of Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic. He sadly passed away last year after a long and courageous battle with his health.
Steve was a crucial part of the clinic growing to what it is today. He bought a wealth of knowledge and friendship along the journey and he fostered a culture of caring for everyone around him.
Over the years, Steve mentored so many physios in a friendly and empowering manner that many of us will carry his advice with us forever. His sense of humour and upbeat nature will never be forgotten.
His commitment to the teams he worked with was very special and many of the athletes kept in contact over the years. Those teams included:
Australian Men's Basketball team "Boomers" Olympic (2004, 2008, 2012) and World Championship (2006, 2010) campaigns;
NBL teams Nunawading Spectres, South East Melbourne Magic, Melbourne Titans and Melbourne Tigers over more than 25 years;
Other Australian basketball teams including junior squads and the Opals.
Victorian State basketball teams
Sadly missed and will never be forgotten - Steve Evans (18/05/1953 to 26/05/2015)
