Young basketballers have returned to training at Horsham Basketball Stadium following a long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Horsham Amateur Basketball Association president Jon Fitzgerald said he was thrilled to throw open the stadium doors following easing government restrictions at the start of the month.
“It feels amazing – it is so good to be back,” he said.
“There has been a lot of work done behind the scenes to get prepared and now we’re finally allowed back in the stadium again, which is great.”

Mr Fitzgerald said the association had a COVID plan and was abiding by Basketball Victoria guidelines.
“At the moment we are only allowed to have juniors for non-contact training, but we’re hoping with the number of active COVID-19 cases continuing to drop, that we will be able to have full-on training in the not-too-distant future,” he said.
He said if things continued to go well, basketball leaders would then look to select junior representative teams as well as senior Horsham Hornets teams.
Registrations for a junior summer competition are now open, online at register.horshambasketball.com.au.
Domestic training is open to youth registered for the summer competition, which will run across terms one and two next year.
People can follow Horsham Basketball on Facebook for updates.
