Friday 17th September FINALS

Kia ora koutou

Firstly, on behalf of Whanganui Basketball thank you all for your patience while we work through the Delta Alert Level 2 Guidelines and how we can transition back to Basketball safely.

We are definitely keen to complete our Secondary Schools competition. However, due to the current L2 restrictions on numbers we are unable to run the finals night as originally planned

so will run the “grand finals’ only for the Junior and Premier Grades as below.


WBA Secondary Schools Finals Draw  Friday 17th September 2021


Junior Girls Grand Final
4.00pm WHS Jnr Girls vs WCS Jnr Girls
Premier Girls Grand Final
5.00pm WHS Snr Girls vs Cullinane Premier Girls
Junior Boys Grand Final
6.00pm  WHS Junior Boys vs TAS Jnr Boys
Senior Boys Grand Final
7.00pm WHS Snr Boys vs TAS Snr Boys

We know there will be some disappointed teams but unfortunately, we were are unable to accommodate all teams under the proposed restrictions.

We can certainly revisit this if our circumstances were to change.

For the schools and teams included in the finals,  a set of guidelines will be sent no later than Wednesday informing each team of the procedures for the night.

Each team will also be given adequate time to transition in and out of their games and also sufficient time to warm up. At this stage, team personnel will be restricted up to 12 Registered players

and up to three management ie coach, manager, and TIC. A list will be required prior to entering the stadium.


No spectators will be allowed into the stadium under Level 2 but All games will be live streamed through our Whanganui Basketball Facebook page.

Once again we are sorry we are unable to accommodate all our teams but please feel free to contact me if you have any queries
