The SSN has confirmed that no matches will take place this weekend, as a reschedule of the fixture for the last 3 rounds is completed.
While fans may be disappointed not to see their favourite teams out on court over the weekend it is a well-deserved and timely break for all players, coaches and supporting staff.
This break will be a reset for the bodies and the minds of the players and will hopefully reduce the mental fatigue they are all going through after a week that can only be described as utter chaos.
To summarise this chaos, the league initially had decided to finish the season in a hub in Adelaide, however due to rising COVID-19 cases throughout South Australia and a hard lockdown, it was near impossible to continue.
On Tuesday, officials of the Suncorp Super Netball made a quick judgement to move teams to a hub in Queensland and keep the season alive, with West Coast Fever and GIANTS Netball joining on Wednesday.
Netball Australia CEO Kelly Ryan said that the last-minute move to Queensland presented significant challenges regarding the fixture.
“The teams have experienced a highly disrupted week, having relocated to Queensland at very short notice”.
“We have a number of challenges to work through with our stakeholders, including venues and broadcast, before we can lock in the broadcast for the next three rounds”
The resiliency of all SSN players, coaches and officials has been nothing short of incredible.
The league has confirmed that all matches for the next round will resume mid-week with a fixture for the remaining three rounds of the home and away season to be released as soon as possible.
If you do require a netty fix this weekend, please don’t forget the ANZ Premiership will be on all weekend and you can access the games here.
