In consultation with all WABL Associations, Basketball WA has made the difficult decision to cancel this weekend’s WABL Grading to be held at Bendat Basketball Centre (19 – 20 March 2022)
Our Under 16 & 18 Boys and Girls were due to hit the court; however, multiple teams across multiple Associations have had to withdraw due to ongoing covid cases impacting their clubs.
Basketball WA and Associations will always aim to ensure the integrity of the competition is maintained. With this in mind, if grading were to go ahead with limited teams, the integrity of the results would be impacted. We also recognise that the State Government is predicting for Western Australia to potentially hit the peak of the spread of COVID within the community this coming weekend/week and understand the impact this will have on our teams, as well as considering the health and wellbeing of the basketball community.
This week, Basketball WA will liaise with WABL Administrators regarding the replacement grading process.
We continue to look forward to a big year for WABL in 2022, and as always, the health and safety of our basketball community remain our number one priority.
If you have any specific questions regarding your WABL team, please contact your local Association.
