The highlight of this event was indeed the handpicked panel of South Australian sporting greats, eloquently hosted by world Champion Squash great and media personality, Chris Dittmar.  ‘Ditt’s and the panel  addressed the topic of 'Grass Roots Club, and how they formed the foundation for sporting greatness and the importance of the industry in the future of South Australian communities'.  The 2019 Panel consisted of
