Super Netball League Confirm Postponement To 2020 Season

Published:

The Super Netball League Commission (SNLC) today announced that the upcoming Suncorp Super Netball season would be deferred and will not commence prior to 30 June.

Sunshine Coast Lightning fully endorse the SNLC's decision and will continue to work closely with the league in the coming months.

The health and wellbeing of each SSN Clubs' athletes, staff, stakeholders and the wider community were central to this difficult but necessary decision.

Lightning CEO Danielle Smith praised the collaborative approach from the league and each of the Clubs to manage this unprecedented situation.

"While disappointing for all involved, we support the Super Netball League's decision to postpone the 2020 season and we are committed to playing our role in reducing the spread of COVID-19" Smith said.

"We stand united as a code, and all clubs are eager to eventually get back out on court playing the game we all love, however, the health and wellbeing of the wider community must take precedence right now."

The Super Netball League Commission released a statement on the state of the 2020 season earlier today.

"Given the evolving landscape, the Commission has determined that the start of the season will be deferred and will not commence prior to 30 June," the statement read.

"The SNLC will review the situation before the end of May and, based on the latest medical advice and government regulations, will determine whether the season start date should be extended out further."

The Deakin University Australian Netball League 2020 season has also been deferred, with no games to be played before 30 June 2020.

Lightning will continue to keep Members and fans up to date through their email and digital channels as more information becomes available.

The SSN was originally scheduled to commence on Saturday 2 May 2020.
