WINTER SEASON 2022
All Clubs met last night to work out where we were at in terms of numbers in an attempt to get Winter 2022 season off the ground. Despite numerous permeations being worked on for numerous grades throughout the association we were unable to make it work. Whilst some ...grades were completely full, other grades could not get comps together, our seniors would have needed up having multiple grades combined, ie A B and C grade combine to make a competition. All clubs present agreed that this was unworkable and not suitable to their clubs, as such it was decided that we will return for Summer 2022-23 without a winter season.
This is a sad decision, and we hate making it, anyone who understands the people involved in running our association would know that not having a competition running is a regrettable, but those same people have to ensure the long-term aspect of our association. The WBA will work hard over the break to ensure that we are ready to fire back into action when summer season rolls around. Please keep a look out for trainings that we will offer to get more refs involved, we are seeking more experienced members of association to put their hands up and get involved in umpiring, if you ever considered “giving back” to your sport this could be a way of doing so.
We will keep you informed as to any news, events etc during the break so keep an eye on the page. See you all at the commencement of Summer 2022-23, rest up, enjoy the break and most of all look after yourselves.
