The Frankston and District Basketball Association wishes to extend its sincere condolences to family and friends of Geoff Ridgway.

Past Frankston Blues Men’s head coach and Association manager Bill Runchey provided some words.

Geoff was a true gentleman who will be remembered fondly by all fans of basketball throughout the 90’s for his court announcing at Blues home games during that era. Many will recall his signature “swish!” as another free throw was recorded by a Blues player.

Geoff was also a reliable, loyal and trusted employee of the FDBA for some time. He took particular pride in having his paperwork spot on and would come in the morning after his shift and “nut out” any rare discrepancy with our bookkeeper Heather, no matter how small.

Geoff was a great supporter of his family, their teams and the Blues Club. I personally appreciated his support of me during my entire time at the Club.

Swish! Geoff!
