Dear TBA Members,
I would like to thank you all for your patience over the last several months whilst we have been dealing with the Covid19 lockdown and ramifications that come with that.
I wanted to provide you with an update of what is happening regarding our competitions.
We understand that there will be a lot of questions and uncertainty at this time. We are relying on Basketball NSW and Government agencies to make decisions that will impact us.
Until we have that information, we are doing the best we can, preparing to restart basketball when given the go ahead by the NSW Government. Based on the 3-step process announced by the Federal Government we will most likely need to be in Step 3 before being able to return, and even then, restrictions will apply. More details will follow on that as it comes to hand.
As many of you know we generally run 2 competitions each year. Our Winter competitions run from February to June and our Summer competitions from July to December. Rather than start up new Summer Competitions, our intention is to resume the Winter Competitions where they left off. This would be round 4 for seniors and round 3 for junior competitions.
Depending on timing, we may be able to provide a modified Summer Competition later in the year, once the Winter Competitions have been completed.
In the meantime, please like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on what is happening.

We will post updates to these pages as well as our webpage at tamworthBasketball.com.au as they are available.
In order to get us back playing as soon as possible we recommend everyone download the CovidSafe app to their phones. Whilst we understand people may have privacy concerns in regard the app, it is the Government's best way of being able to trace the virus and provide an additional level of safety to Australians. If everyone is downloading the app, it will give the government greater peace of mind that it can track the virus, and give them greater comfort in lifting restrictions that are currently in place.
Yours in Basketball
