We also would like to acknowledge Warwick Senators Basketball Club for their incredible work in preparing to host the 2021 championships. An enormous amount of work has been done from staff and volunteers in the lead up and we extend our thanks to them and their community.
Basketball Australia, in consultation with the State and Territory Associations, is reviewing options for rescheduling this championship.
