    Pelham Panther Basketball Families,

    PPBA is providing an important update in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. Until recently we were hopeful that we would be back on the court sharing our love of the game with our players and their families, but unfortunately we are not able to resume operations for the foreseeable future. We are currently following the direction of Public Health and the Government of Ontario who have mandated social distancing, and prohibition of group gatherings. 

    Many have you have seen the statement from Ontario Basketball that all programing including the Provincial Championships, the Ontario Cup and Ontario Basketball League (OBL) are canceled. OBA is working to provide refunds to clubs, but this will take time and we ask for your patience as we work with our Partners including Ontario Basketball during this trying time. You can read the full statement HERE and Ontario Basketball has provided a FAQ document that we ask you to review. 

    Our Executive team continues to meet and will provide updates as information becomes available. Again we ask for your patience and understanding as we work through situation. During this time we will maintain and update our social media accounts hoping to help our athletes stay positive and engaged until we can return to the court. 

    On Behalf of the PPBA Executive, We wish all our families and friends well and look forward to getting back to the hardwood!
