2021 National Wheelchair Aussie Rules
2021 Wheelchair AFL National Tournament cancelled
2021 Boccia Australia National Titles
2021 Boccia Australia National Titles cancelled
After lengthy discussion and careful consideration, the Board has made the very difficult decision that the reality of COVID19 makes holding Boccia Australia National Titles in 2021 untenable.
This difficult decision was based on the uncertainty around travel restrictions, and concern for the health of our athletes. We would like to thank ParaQuad Tasmania for all the great preparation work they have done towards organizing what would have been a terrific competition. We look forward to holding the Nationals in Tasmania in the future. A decision will be made later this year about the 2022 Nationals.
BA will now turn our energies to organizing another way of coming together nationally this year – perhaps virtually – stay tuned. Please in the current times care for each other. And don’t forget to watch our Aussie Team in Tokyo – wishing them all the best!
