UPDATE (March 20):
Newcastle Basketball Stadium remains closed and all competitions and programs remain suspended. Newcastle Basketball management remains in daily communication with Basketball NSW management for updates on the latest information regarding Coronavirus. Newcastle Basketball management will meet on Monday, March 23 for further discussions with a view to reopening. We appreciate our members’ patience and cooperation during this difficult time and will provide further updates when available.
IN light of recent events and the emergence of additional information and guidance into the management and risk mitigation related to the spread of the Coronavirus, Newcastle Basketball will suspend all competitions and programs from 6pm, Monday 16th March, 2020.
Our priority is the health and well-being of all members and facility users and this suspension of activities extends to all junior and senior competitions, venue hirers, development programs and casual shoot-arounds until further notice.
As this is a rapidly evolving situation, Newcastle Basketball would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we work through this difficult period. This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and we want to reassure the basketball community that we will continue to follow the advice of authorities and health professionals to ensure the health and well-being of all members.
