DPNA Update – delay to start of 2020 season

This afternoon (13 March 2020) the following notification was received from the Downey Park Netball Association:

An important message to the Downey Park Netball Association (DPNA) community, associated Clubs, and members regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The highest priority of DPNA and Netball Queensland, is the health and wellbeing of its athletes, staff, the netball community, members and all other stakeholders. As a result of the ongoing response to COVID-19 or Coronavirus, and in response to the announcement made by our Prime Minister at 2.10pm 13th March 2020, we are suspending the first two rounds of fixtures dated the 28th March and 4th April 2020.

We will keep you informed of the status of fixtures after the Easter holidays. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience, however the health and wellbeing of our players, staff, and the wider community must take priority.

We appreciate the ongoing support and understanding from you all during this challenging time.
