NETBALLERS around the region managed to recently squeeze in some representative match time this month before coronavirus restrictions came into play but for club players it's unclear when they'll be able to take to the court.
Players across the state will be waiting until at least April 15 to get news about match time, when Netball NSW will follow up with a fresh announcement.
Until then? It's all about keeping up fitness and staying motivated in case the season gets back underway.
There's still finals of the Regional League to hopefully be played in 2020, and another exciting edition of the Bathurst Netball Association A Grade competition - where Collegians would be gunning for a third straight crown.
Bathurst Netball Association secretary Angela Best players will have to do what they can to keep fit, given all forms of training have been banned due to government restrictions.
"As a rep coach, we're getting kids to do stuff at home. I've sent programs to my under 13s, and I know the 17s coach is checking in with what they're doing to keep fit," she said.
"My daughter, who's been playing in Sydney, has been down shooting on courts but that's unfortunately about all anyone can do at this stage.
"She'll go down and exercise on her own and that's all you can do. As a coach I've encouraged my sides to stay fit, because if it starts back up we'll all be ready to go then.
"It's all on hold at this stage and we've asked people to stop registering."
Bathurst's younger sides have enjoyed an excellent start to their Regional League campaigns but haven't had the chance to complete the perfect season.
The city's division two girls were also in fine form prior to the competition being brought to a halt.
Best said is was nice that rep players could get some minutes on the court, and players shouldn't lose hope of going without a finals series in 2020.
"That was great, and nothing's been cancelled yet, it's just been postponed. We're hoping to get back and finish regional league off, and that senior state titles can go ahead later in the year," she said.
"It's been moved, since it was in June, to hopefully the back end of the season, which you'd think would be around October.
"It'd be nice to get back out there for some court time. I've never been so bored in my life."
BNA released a statement saying "all activities including playing, training, grading, umpire training etc are to be suspended effective immediately until the 2nd May ... [and] Netball NSW will be releasing an update on the 15th April."
