Welcome to the Tatiara for the 2020 South Australian Masters Games.​ We are proud to host the Masters Games and delighted to welcome participants and supporters to the good country for a weeklong celebration of sport and events.


The Tatiara Masters Games will feature 26 different sports, from Athletics to Volleyball, Gliding to Muay Thai, and Cutting Horse to Strong Man competitions. We will do things a little different from other Games, hosting sports not just in one town but showcasing venues across the district. We encourage you to visit all of our towns, see lots of events, meet new people, and most importantly, have fun.


We would also like to thank everyone who has helped turn the Tatiara Masters Games from an ambitious dream into reality, in particular our amazing local sporting groups and volunteers. We could not host an event like this without your support and passionate commitment to your sport. Thank you.


We hope you enjoy your time in the Tatiara and take the opportunity to explore our district and the Limestone Coast.

Thanks for joining us for the Games and the best of luck to all you.


Graham Excell (Mayor) & Anne Champness (Chief Executive Officer)

Mark Davis came out to Australia in 1985 to play with the South Adelaide Panthers after playing in New Zealand and winning a Championship with ‘Dorados Chihuahua’ in Mexico.

Mark brought a style of his own to Australia with his natural skill and flair, Adelaide quickly warmed to their new adopted son. Mark raised the profile of basketball not only in Adelaide but also throughout the NBL.

It was not long before legendary coach Ken Cole signed Mark up to the West End 36ERS – where Mark took to the Apollo stadium like his own ‘playgrounds’ back home and led the team with his MVP Performance to their unforgettable 1986 Championship win.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, USA. Mark toughed it out to gain his individual status both on the court and in the playgrounds sharpening his basketball skills, he then headed off to College where the basketball competition grew stronger and opportunities and respect had to be gained.

Mark knows and has experienced the importance of teamwork and self-motivation whether through sport or everyday life and business. This is the means through which Mark Davis Camps operates. Mark, or The Chairman of the Boards to which he is also known as throughout the Australian Basketball family has gained well-deserved respect around the league from his fans, media and fellow NBL players.

With the Mark Davis Camps program, Mark regularly visits Country SA to assist the youth by running basketball programs and competitions within the communities and also mentoring those needing the extra assistance.
