WBA NewsCOVID-19 Competitions Update July 10
With the Government imposed six-week lock down for metropolitan Melbourne, WBA has suspended all basketball-related activities from Wednesday the 8th of July until further notice.
Unfortunately, this means that the Winter 2020 season for both Junior and Senior domestic competitions has now been officially cancelled.
Following this, Basketball Victoria has announced cancellation of the VJBL and BIG V representative competitions for 2020 in the interest of public health and well-being.
As announced prior, the NBL1 season has also been cancelled for 2020.
We understand that these decisions will bring great disappointment across our community and we share this disappointment with you. However, the health, safety and well-being of WBA members and the greater community remains as our top priority.
We will return from this time away bigger and better as we combine forces with the Oakleigh Recreation Centre. Five brand new courts will be included as part of WBA’s Summer competition. Click here for a walk through of the amazing $24M redevelopment.
WBA staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get the stadium ready for recommencement. Although, this has now been postponed, our stadium is ready to go and looking great for when we finally return. Click here for a quick walk through of the WBA stadium.
WBA staff will work at home until further notice but can still be contacted via email. You can find contact details for all staff here.
We would like to thank everyone for your continued patience during this time away. Navigating through these unknown and ever-changing circumstances has been incredibly difficult and time consuming. We really appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to seeing familiar faces once basketball returns.
