The Deakin Melbourne Boomers have been notified that the Perth Lynx and Sydney Flames game, as part of our Round 6 double header, has been postponed.

The WNBL have made changes to the schedule of games in line with its COVID health and safety protocols and respective state government close contact requirements.

In regard to the postponed match, the WNBL stated, “the health and safety of the players, coaches, clubs, staff and fans is the League’s number one priority when considering these matters”.

“The WNBL will continue to follow the advice of governments and health authorities. Regular testing of all players and team staff will continue, while further testing will be carried out on individuals impacted or those deemed close contacts.

The league will work with all teams to reschedule games in the coming weeks.”
