Good Luck to our teams playing in Semi-Finals and Grand-Finals this week!

As previously mentioned, we are unable to hold a Presentation Day this year due to Covid restrictions, however we invite all teams and players to come and collect an end of season gift from our West table (near the noticeboard in the stadium) after your final game. A reminder to also bring a spare t-shirt so you can return your singlet.

A reminder that the rules of one spectator per player still applies to this final week of competition. Please refer to the Newcastle Basketball website for further information on stadium guidelines.


A note with any end of season get togethers that are planned within the team, the latest NSW Chief Health Officer advice states:
Cease face-to-face social activities relating to community sports (e.g. award ceremonies, end-of-season social gatherings, post-training group dinners)
