Ginever made his SANFL debut a pacy 17-year-old rover in 1983. After suffering serious injuries early in his career, Ginever was forced to reinvent himself as a gritty and determined on-field warrior and it was in this guise that Ginever excelled as a footballer and as an on-field leader.
In 1994 he was appointed captain of Port Adelaide, and captained his club from 1994 to 1997, after which he retired. Ginever got better with age and as captain, winning his club's best and fairest award in 1994 and 1997 (his final year). His SANFL club made the Grand Final in all four of Ginever's captaincy years and they won the premiership on three of these occasions.
Ginever was appointed assistant coach of the Port Adelaide Magpies in 2005 under the legendary John Cahill, who was brought back as coach for one year while Ginever served his apprenticeship. Ginever then took over as coach in 2006 for four seasons but was not able to reproduce the same success he had as a player. On 14 August 2009, Ginever announced his retirement from coaching at the end of the 2009 SANFL minor round. In a statement issued by the Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club, it says the decision was a mutual one between Ginever and the Club's Board.
Tim has since been actively involved in the OnePAFC campaign designed to garner support for the reunification of the Port Adelaide Football Club and the Port Adelaide Magpies Football Club, which currently have a shared history.
He is now working for Adelaide radio station 5AA, part of its breakfast program as the 'Man on the street' and Australian rules football coverage.
