We are experiencing unprecedented times globally and in our sport of Basketball we have been working with all areas of the sport across Australia to ensure we are making decisions that protect the health and safety of the community, our participants and athletes.
As a result of the International Paralympic Committee’s announcements and previous statements by the Australian Paralympic Committee, Basketball Australia has commenced planning for the newley announced Paralympic games to be held in August-September Tokyo 2021. We support this change and know it’s made in the best interests of our athletes, support staff and the community’s health, safety and well-being. I would like to personally thank the Basketball sector for their ongoing support and commitment as we navigate our way through these challenging times.
Jerril Rechter CEO, Basketball Australia.
