RE: Coronavirus Update (COVID-19) – Monday 16th March
Following the State Governments announcement today of a ‘State of Emergency’ and updated advice from Basketball Victoria in relation to COVID-19, Nunawading Basketball and the Nunawading Basketball Centre will remain closed for at least the next four weeks from Monday 16th March until Monday 13th April 2020. Basketball Victoria have advised that the suspension of all basketball related activities includes formal or organised team training, programs and events.
Tonight, the MEBA has made the incredibly tough decision to cancel the remainder of the Summer 2019/20 Season for both Junior and Senior Domestic Competitions. We appreciate that many people will be disappointed, however we trust that you will understand the incredibly difficult position that is upon us all at this time.
At this point in time the Winter 2020 season shall start as soon as we can recommence playing however, given the uncertainty of the situation at hand this decision is ever evolving and may need to be adjusted over the coming weeks and months and we shall work with all stakeholders to ensure the process is as efficient as possible.
