COVID-19 UPDATE NO.1
As advised on Friday 13th March 2020, Mornington District Basketball Association, has indefinitely suspended all MDBA sanctioned activity until further notice due to COVID-19. This action was taken following advice from our governing body, Basketball Victoria.
MDBA has not received any confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus from any of its members. The decision to close is to reduce the chance of infection to our members and slow potential transmission and community spread of the virus.
Please read below confirmed details:

Winter 2020 registrations
Team registrations for the Winter 2020 season close on Friday 20th March 2020. Please ensure that you register your team before the cut-off date to avoid the $60.00 late fee. With the new PlayHQ system in place and staff working in upheaval, we would like to request that you please have your team registrations in on time. This will ensure that the season is fixtured and ready to kick off as soon as we have the green light.
