Swifts players are preparing for a match when they are on court prior to the first centre pass. They are in game focus mode and are not available for selfies or signings.


Players will make themselves available to fans for signings and selfies courtside. The Club places a signing session countdown clock on the big screen to give fans an indication of when players need to return to change rooms for post-game recovery. 

At times, certain players may be unavailable to sign autographs due to post-game media commitments or recovery needs. 

Please note that while the players try to meet as many fans as possible the Club cannot guarantee that every selfie or autograph request will be fulfilled. We ask that fans, young and old, show kindness and respect to their fellow game attendees. No abuse of our athletes, staff, volunteers or fellow fans will be tolerated.
