COVID-19 Impacts to National Tournaments.

The recent outbreak of COVID 19 in multiple States and recent border closures across the country has significantly impacted national basketball tournaments.

The 2021 Australian Under-16 Championships, set to be held at Warwick Stadium (WA) commencing Sunday 4 July, will not proceed as it has been determined that the minimum number of teams required to compete cannot be met.

We would like to thank the State and Territory associations along with their athletes and families for their continued commitment to the Australian Junior Championships and to acknowledge the Warwick Senators Basketball Club for their incredible work in preparing to host the 2021 championships.

Basketball Australia, in consultation with the State and Territory Associations are reviewing options for rescheduling this championship.

All ticketholders will be provided a refund, no action is required to request a refund.

Round four of the National Wheelchair Basketball League that was scheduled for next weekend in Queensland has been cancelled. Each game scheduled for this weekend will be recorded as a nil all result, with the focus turning to the NWBL finals campaign.

The impacts of COVID 19 on our sport are significant and we appreciate the ongoing support of the basketball family as we navigate this together.
