Therefore, it is not surprising that his son followed in his footsteps, starting from an early childhood to make his way into the world of professional sports as a bowler.

In 2009, at the age of 17, Zampa joined the Australian national team, which represented the team “up to 19 years”, and a year later in 2010 signed a contract with the NSW Blues team. Adam stood out from the rest of the players in that he had his own style, which was characterized by a light throw of the ball above eye level. During the same period, Zampa was invited to the New South Wales national team, but the player could not prove himself, as the team featured more experienced bowlers, who were preferred.

In 2013, Zampa started playing in Sheffield Shield. In the first match against Queensland, the player was able to win five wickets, thereby impressing the South Australian coaching staff, who invited Zampa to join the national team in the same year.
