Sport, especially Basketball, seems to run through the blood of many Lithuanians. With the arrival of the first post World War II immigrants, five Lithuanians began playing for the Woodville basketball club in Adelaide.
They then registered their own Lithuanian team and choose the name VYTIS. The Sports club was officially formed on March 25th 1950 and because the basketball team was named VYTIS it was decided that the name should remain and that the club officially be christened VYTIS.
We now celebrate 66 years as a sports club, an astounding achievement and we continue our commitment to promote and foster sports in the Lithuanian community, to follow on the traditions set down by our predecessors.
We hold many functions during the year to promote not only sport but camaraderie as well. Currently we have 2 men’s teams, 1 women’s team mixed basketball.
Our current committee are
President : Krystina De Lisio
Vice President / Secretary : Alex Talanskas
Treasurer : Angela Snarskis
Women’s Sports : Sara Krivickas
