UPDATE -14th April 2020 Domestic / Social Basketball
Due to stage 3 restrictions and the extension of the State of Emergency (until May 11) by the Victorian Government, the Autumn and Winter 2020 domestic basketball seasons are suspended until at least 31 May 2020.

The following is a statement from Basketball Victoria CEO Nick Honey regarding COVID-19.
Basketball Victoria has made the decision to suspend Basketball Victoria related programs, events and leagues from now March 13, until further notice. This includes ALL VJBL games, Big V games and the Country Championships being held in Ballarat this weekend.
As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we work through this difficult period. This is a decision we don’t take lightly and want to reassure the basketball community that we will continue to work with the Victorian Government and other health authorities to ensure the health and wellbeing of our players, coaches, referees and staff are maintained.
Further updates will be provided in the coming days and weeks.
