Hello TML Members,
Over the last few weeks, the TML Exec have been discussing whether any form of Summer League could be organised.
With the Government putting back the date of derestriction of Covid measures it has limited the time left to do that.
Also, many teams are reporting that their venues are only re-opening in September.
So, it has been decided that no formal TML Summer League will be organised.
All our efforts will go into ensuring we are ready for a mid-September full League restart.
(The AGM to Register for that new season will likely take place before the end of July/Early August.)
This does not exclude Teams organising friendlies amongst themselves. (The Government guidelines do allow 30 participants on any one indoor court.) However, hardly any participants have Registered with Basketball England for this 2020-21 season and so any games will be without their Insurance protection .
It is recommended that Covid hygiene procedures are continued for the foreseeable future.
The Exec apologise if this is disappointing, but it recognises the reality of the situation we find ourselves in.
