Covid 19 Update from Basketball Manawatu

Share this article

As you will know from this afternoon’s Government update, the rest of New Zealand apart from Auckland will move to Alert Level 2 from 11.59pm tomorrow, Tuesday. Auckland will remain in Alert Level 4 for at least another week.

Alert Level 2 may look something like it did in the past, but with some key changes. This includes a tightening of gatherings numbers (indoors vs outdoors) and travel controls. These changes will bring operational challenges/changes for our Basketball Manawatu operations and so our staff and board will work swiftly with Basketball New Zealand and Sport New Zealand to fully understand the rules and test related scenarios.

A further announcement on alert levels for our region is expected Monday 13th September.

The CET Venue remains closed, and further restrictions imposed at L2 mean the suspension of Basketball continues until further notice.

We are hopeful that a shift to the old Level 2 can happen soon, and will allow us to begin to plan for a return to the game we all love.

Sport Manawatu, PNCC (as venue owners) and the management staff of Basketball Manawatu are all working hard on how we can make things happen.

More information on other Alert level requirements, will be shared as we get closer to fully reopening.

Thank you for your continued patience, we hope you are all well, keeping safe and enjoying some quiet time in your bubbles.

We will be in touch again as soon as we know more, and especially following any further announcements from Sports NZ, BBNZ or the Government 

Be safe and kind, we hope to see you all again soon!
