Basketball Victoria Updates
VICTORIAN JUNIOR BASKETBALL LEAGUE
Basketball Victoria has cancelled all Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL) games scheduled for Friday 28 May. This round will not be replayed or caught up due to previous catch-up games held for the February lockdown using the reserve weeks. Further information regarding the Friday 4 June VJBL round will be announced during the week.
Basketball Victoria has postponed all Big V games scheduled for the weekend of 28-30 May. This round will be rescheduled with further information about rescheduled dates and other potential round postponements will be announced next week.
Basketball Victoria and the NBL are working with the Victorian Government to obtain Professional Sports Exemptions for athletes so the majority of NBL1 South games can take place this weekend. Games between Mt Gambier and Hobart will proceed as previously scheduled as those teams have been re-routed through Sydney. We will have further information on the status of these games as soon as possible.
