Dear West Pymble Netball Club Members,

The Board and Management of Netball NSW have been continuing to closely monitor developments with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic since their Memo entitled “Netball NSW Covid-19 Response” issued on 16 March 2020. NNSW have provided a further status update to the NSW netball community.

“Netball NSW has continued our scenario planning to prepare for what the 2020 season might look like subject to the status of the public health advice by certain milestones. Everyone would appreciate that there is still a lot we do not know about how Australia may be impacted by this pandemic moving forward, and how all tiers of Government may need to respond.

Netball NSW considers it important that we provide ongoing guidance to our Membership on our current thinking at this review date so that all of our Clubs and Associations can continue their own planning and preparation for a potential deferred season in 2020.

The current NSW Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order 2020 (Public Health Order) is presently in force until Monday, 29 June 2020. Netball NSW confirms that the suspension of all netball activities must therefore continue until at least that date, unless the NSW Government decides to lift the Public Health Order earlier.

Netball NSW will continue to strictly follow the Government advice so that we will only get back out on court when it is deemed safe to do so.

This guidance will be further reviewed by no later than 1 June 2020 subject to the existing Government advice available.”

KNA are closely monitoring the information as it becomes available from Netball NSW.  We will keep our members informed as soon as we become aware of any new updates.

Thank you.

West Pymble Netball Club Committee
