We understand that the impact of these restrictions may cause logistical issues for some of our domestic teams. If you cannot play or need support in any way please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the office on 59777533.

Somerville Recreation Centre is a mixed-use facility providing stadiums as well group exercise classes, childcare, youth programs, meeting spaces and a café all as part of the venues core business. Somerville Recreation Centre does not meet the exception for community sport as outlined in the Open Premise directions, specifically part 27 (2).
At this point in time, vaccinations will be required for all patrons aged 12 and over unless exempt to ensure entry conditions are met particularly at the Somerville Recreation Centre. This includes players, coaches, officials, spectators, volunteers and staff.
Basketball Victoria yesterday announced that all Basketball Victoria operated leagues (VJBL and Big V), events, tournaments, programs, camps or clinics will require all individuals aged 16 plus to be fully vaccinated (unless medically exempt) to participate. This policy has been introduced following an audit of VJBL venues that showed more than 65 per cent of venues were unable to offer the Community Sport Exemption due to the layout, operation or usage of their venues.
