Return to Sport – 5 August Update

The Victorian Government, on advice from the Department of Health, has chosen to enact a snap lockdown for Victoria with these measures staying in effect for 7 days from Thursday 5 August at 8.00pm.

In line with Victorian Government health directives, basketball across Victoria will be placed at the RED-0 REACTIVATION LEVEL as per the Basketball Victoria Return to Sport Guidelines.

There will be no games for Basketball Victoria-managed leagues, there will be more details to follow in regard to resumption in the coming days.

Basketball Victoria recommends that all basketball fixtures scheduled for Thursday 5 August between now and 8pm be cancelled for the best interest of the community.

As with the most recent lockdown, we will be in close communication with the Department of Health and Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) to ensure indoor basketball can reactivate as quickly as possible following the current restrictions.

We appreciate your understanding and patience throughout this difficult period.

Please review the Return to Sport Guidelines for further information.
