NOTICE 15 August 2020
Cancelled. Suncoast Spinner Wheelchair Basketball. 2021 TOURNAMENT
Due to the ongoing restrictions and uncertainty surrounding COVID 19, the difficult decision has been made to cancel the Suncoast Spinners Wheelchair Basketball tournament 2021. The committee has looked at all possibilities but unfortunately even a Queensland only event has become unworkable due to Indoor Event COVID 19 Safety Requirements.
This is only the second time we have had to cancel the tournament with the first being due to the floods in 2011. We will keep you apprised of future news regarding any events that the club may be able to hold and also of information about our 2022 tournament.
Looking forward to seeing you all again when circumstances allow.
