The move to incorporate these accessibility features aligns with Basketball NSW’s dedication to promoting an inclusive and diverse basketball community. It’s about ensuring that every member of the community, regardless of their abilities, can access vital information, enjoy content, and actively participate in the sport they love.
The organisation remains open to suggestions and ideas for further improvements and encourages a collaborative approach in achieving a more accessible and inclusive online presence.
