Basketball NSW continues to work closely with Basketball Australia, NSW Office of Sport, NSW Health and other government agencies as we plan for the return of basketball in NSW.
Our localised plan for the return of basketball in NSW is in line with the Federal Governments National Principals for the Resumption of Sport, the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport in a Covid-19 Environment with Basketball Australia’s Return to Basketball Guidelines providing a strong reference point.
We continue to work with Basketball Australia and the other Basketball States and Territories to develop practical working guides for associations to use in enabling basketball activities to be run as soon as possible.
We’re all in this together. Let’s be safe and let’s support each other!
THE GOVERNMENT RESTRICTION LEVEL: B
Level B consists of a gradual return to basketball, this is subject to both the size of permitted gatherings and venue types. For basketball this means:
Association and Community Activities
→Gatherings of up to 10 people are permitted (outdoor only)
→Outdoor basketball activities can resume, complying with physical distancing measures.
→Our events will recommence when gatherings of between 50-100 depending on the nature of the activity and size of the stadium.
→The Basketball NSW team expects to release an event calendar to you very soon. We will publish it here as soon as it is completed.
Activities NOT permitted

The NSW Government has enacted several Public Health Orders which directly impact on the Sport and Active Recreation Sector. Friday 15 May: Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order (No 2) 2020
The Office of Local Government has developed a local government FAQs document which includes information relating to sport and recreation activities and venues.
