The Suncorp Super Netball League competition will remain in Queensland as the south-east of the state enters a three-day lockdown.

The Queensland Government today confirmed professional sport could not be played during the snap lockdown, which is due to end at 4pm (AEST) on Tuesday 3 August.

The league is continuing discussions with the Queensland Government on training and the remaining matches.

There are seven matches remaining in the home and away season, which are scheduled to be played next Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.

The league will provide an update on the fixture as soon as possible.

All players, coaches, staff and officials have been abiding by stay-at-home restrictions since mid-July.

Netball Australia CEO Kelly Ryan said the coronavirus pandemic continued to present as a significant challenge for the league.

“Our teams have moved several times this year and we want to want to provide them with stability as the competition reaches the final rounds,” Ryan said.

“The health and wellbeing of our athletes, coaches, staff and officials is always at the forefront of our decision-making process.”

“We feel we have flexibility in our fixture to make adjustments to play out the season.”
