January 26. A conflicting date for many Australians. For some, this date reflects over 200 years of destruction and denigration of our traditional customs, values, languages, and cultural landscapes.

The Byron Bay Beez basketballers are enjoying a return to most competitions, and after two rounds the senior men have posted a win and a loss.

The Senior Men’s Beez have had two rounds of the Sunshine Conference. They opened their post-COVID season with an 87-82 win against the Grafton Vikings, but were defeated by Bellinger Valley Braves 96-65.

Some COVID-19 restrictions still in place

In the next round, the Beez will play Lismore Storm on 19 September.

The Waratah Northern Junior League is still suspended in line with Basketball Australia COVID-19 health guidelines, but in the meantime, the Junior Rep Beez teams are competing in the North Coast Shield and the Lismore Challenge Cup, which involves Lismore, Bellingen Braves, Ballina, Grafton and Coffs Harbour.

All of the Byron Beez social competitions are back up and running, including divisions from Aussie Hoops for the juniors in primary school.

Social competitions for high school boys and girls, and senior men and mixed are well underway.
