USC Rip City Basketball is a community based basketball association, run by the University of Sunshine Coast Basketball Association (USCBA) which was established in 2008. The club plays out of the premier basketball facility on the Sunshine Coast – a three-court indoor air-conditioned 2000 seat capacity stadium at the Sunshine Coast University.


They began with offering community based junior club basketball in 2008. Eventually, they realized the opportunity to broaden their service offering, which was certainly in demand at the time . Five years ago, they switched to a more comprehensive program, catering to all basketball enthusiasts – men, women and children. 

Today, it is the leading basketball association in the Sunshine Coast offering all facets of basketball to cater for everyone including:

  • Aussie Hoops & Miniball (For kids)
  • Junior Social Competitions (Aged 8-18)
  • Adult Social Competitions (For Men/Women)
  • Junior Representative (BQJBC)
  • Senior Representative (SBL/QBL)
  • 3×3 Social Competitions (Ages 5 through adult)
  • 3×3 Junior & Senior Representative (CLB 3×3)

Mark Brown, Treasurer at Rip City came across Yapsody while searching for an online ticketing system to tackle the challenges that came with expanding their offerings. The ease of accepting online payments, efficiently managing the A – Z of ticket sales and the ability to create General Admission and Reserved Seating types with ease made Yapsody just the right online ticketing system for the association.

PLAN: Elite Tier

“Yapsody has provided us with a very intuitive system to use with the flexibility to have general admission or assigned seating as we need for an event.”

The treasurer of Rip City says, “We initially only intended for use Yapsody for our semi-profession game ticketing and major events, but found it to be an effective tool to manage presale of many of our programs, including junior clinics and camps offered throughout the year.” The community association is highly impressed with the premium feature set that has simplified the entire process of managing event ticket sales. “We have even had the opportunity to provide ticketing service at our home venue for a one-off game for a professional sports team, who specifically comments on how well we had run the ticketing process.” Mark adds.
