Playing Dates


PLAYING DATES / COVID-19

WBA’s governing body Basketball Victoria has suspended all basketball related activities, and therefore Waverley Basketball is closed until further notice.  Please click here for our latest news item.

With the spread of COVID-19 increasing across Victoria, and following the Government’s recent announcements and policies, WBA is still preparing for an upcoming season to commence when facilities reopen.  We understand basketball is being widely missed in the community and players will most likely be looking forward to returning to sport as soon as it is safe to do so.  

Once an opening date is confirmed, WBA will meet with all Junior Club Delegates and Playing Dates will be published.  The options currently being considered are below;

 
 

1.

Commencing week of Saturday 16th May through to 29th August + 2 weeks finals.

14 round Winter season > leading into a normal Summer 2021 season.

 

2.

Commencing week of Saturday 13th June through to 10th October + 2 weeks finals (played during term 4)  

14 round Winter season >  leading into a shortened Summer 2021 season. Potential opportunity to play earlier in January and have a shorter summer break to retain the same length of season into 2021.

OR

Commencing same week of Saturday 13th June through to 29th August + 2 weeks finals

Shortened 10 round Winter season >  leading into a normal Summer 2021 season.

 

3.

Commencing week of Saturday 11th July (in line with school term 3) through to 3rd December + 2 weeks finals. 

18 round Spring season.

 

4.

Commencing week of Saturday 3rd October (in line with school term 4) through to Easter 2021

This would be a normal Summer Season with the winter being missed completely.

 

5.

Commencing week of Saturday 31st October (in line with ORC opening) through to Easter 2021

Potential opportunity to play earlier in January and have a shorter summer break to retain the same length of season.

This would also be considered a normal Summer Season, and missing winter entirely.
