    The proposal for a revamped National Basketball League looks dead in the water

    The proposal for a revamped National Basketball League looks dead in the water


    League boss Justin Nelson has unveiled plans for a radical 5-week competition played in one location.

    Newstalk ZB understands 5 of the 8 teams have said no to the proposal, including the defending champion Wellington Saints.

    Saints CEO Jordan Mills says the league's desire to be the first sport back playing after lockdown is wrong.

    Athletics New Zealand hopes their elite athletes can be granted special access to outdoor facilities once the country moves to alert level three next week.

    The organisation has sent formal requests to local venues so the likes of Tom Walsh and Eliza McCartney can train during allocated times so they don't mix with the public or other athletes.

    World golf number one Rory McIlroy would rather postpone the Ryder Cup until 2021 than play it this year without fans.

    And the ATP and WTA, along with the International Tennis Federation and the four grand slams are creating a coronavirus relief fund, to help players affected by the sport's current shutdown.
