THE following is a statement regarding the Country Basketball League games scheduled at Myrtleford this weekend (January 18-19).
Due to air quality and risk of fire in the area, the Country Basketball League (CBL) Round 12 games scheduled at Myrtleford Recreation Reserve will not go ahead this weekend.
At this stage no other CBL games for the 18-19 January weekend will be affected. Basketball Victoria is working closely with local authorities to ensure the safety of our competition’s players, coaches and staff and will postpone any further CBL games under their recommendations.
The safety of travelling teams and referees is paramount and any concerns should be communicated through the associations and the league.
We will make appropriate updates through our website and social media channels if required.
