The club is working hard to ensure we can return to play safely utilising our full risk assessment and has appointed a COVID-19 officer to minimise and manage these risks and to ensure that all best practice guidance is implemented

We are pleased that we can get back to basketball in September and look forward to everyone’s support, by following the guidance we will be issuing, to ensure a safe and enjoyable playing environment for us all.
