Basketball Australia is today mourning the loss of one of the greatest contributors to our sport in this country, Peter Frame, who passed away after suffering a heart attack on Tuesday.

Frame contributed to basketball in Western Australia as a player, coach and administrator for over 65 years during which time he was President of the Executive of Basketball WA for 14 years and a Director for over 20 years.


He was a delegate to the Basketball Australia Council over a 15 year period and represented Basketball WA on both the Commonwealth and Olympic Councils of WA for over 10 years.

He was the manager of the senior national men’s team during the 1981 FIBA Oceania Championship in New Zealand, while as a player he represented WA on five State Teams and coached and managed many more.


Frame was one of the driving forces behind the foundation of the home of Basketball WA, Perry Lakes Basketball Stadium, and was awarded Life Membership of Basketball WA in 1963.

“Peter had done a tremendous amount for basketball, particularly in WA, and will be sadly missed by all,” Basketball Australia Chief Executive Scott Derwin said.

BA would like to extend its sincere condolences to Peter’s wife Clare and the Frame family.

Details of funeral arrangements will be advised.
