Last night a meeting was held between board members of the PDBA and PVRSC to discuss recent issues raised around court bookings and season schedule impacts. The meeting was extremely positive and it was agreed by all that the Stadium as a community facility should ensure that Basketball must continue to remain the primary focus of the PVRSC. While other sports will still be cared for, the PVRSC wants to ensure there are minimal impacts to the PDBA Basketball competitions, especially our growing junior competitions.
The PVRSC board will be holding an extraordinary board meeting with in the next 7 days to reinforce this vision with all PVRSC board members and staff. The objective will be to put plans in place to rectify and minimise disruptions in the future to the Basketball community, and to rectify the schedule for the next season to the satisfaction of stakeholders along with future seasons going forward.
Some minor interruptions are still to be expected while this issue is resolved and draws are finalised, but be assured that the common goal has been agreed and understood and both boards are working hard towards this.
The PVRSC and PDBA boards appreciate the passionate support shown from our community during these interruptions and thanks’ you for your understanding. We ask for a bit of patience while these matters are worked through.
