Senior Refund Information





WBA submitted information to Basketball Victoria on Friday 7th August, allowing some late replies to be received following the deadline.  Last week, BV confirmed receipt of all details and have provided the following:

For applicable teams who made payment through the online PlayHQ website, WBA transferred funds back to PlayHQ last week.  Once this is cleared, all team managers should expect to see the money back in their accounts within a week.
For any player who is not returning to basketball, was eligible for a refund, and provided their bank information via team reps to WBA, this has been passed onto BV accordingly.  BV have confirmed this is now with the finance team and can potentially take up to one or two weeks to process.  Please inform your teammates of this process.



Team Representatives would have all received an email from Shane by now regarding information about refunds for senior team entries/ BV license fees.

Below is a summary of this information:

-          Individual or new teams who made a direct deposit to WBA must contact Shane directly, emailing their bank details to for a refund.

Individual players with any concerns are encouraged to talk to your representative prior to contacting WBA, as they will have all necessary information and forms.

WBA would like to again thankyou for your patience and understanding during these difficult times. We are currently working towards a summer competition and will update everyone accordingly.

Stay safe,
