Our governing body Eightball Tasmania will have guidelines drawn up on a return to sport, these will be for the State body to adopt and a guidance for us an Association to use as we see, but we will need a plan to be adopted.

Once this document is to hand and we have spoken to all our venues we may look at some resumption to the Summer Roster 2019/20, with 2 divisions still having 2 games to go before finals. (wait and see).

The best place for information is our Facebook page and of course the 8Ball Tasmania Facebook page and web site also with our Tasmania Government for easing of restrictions.
