What is PlayHQ? We have nowmigrated to the PlayHQ system – Basketball Victoria’s new membership and competitions platform. All players, coaches and teams must register as a member on the PlayHQ system prior to joining a team. Participants will only need to pay once when they register per 365-day period, irrespective of how many teams or associations they play in.
You must register for a PlayHQ account prior to stepping on the court.
Senior Domestic Team registrations for the Summer 2020-21 are now closed. If you would like to go on our registration waiting list, please email Lynda Spicer at email@example.com
Senior Domestic player registrations are payable when you enter a registered team (you will receive a code to register). Registration costs can be found here: https://www.playhq.com/register/c35d8e
PlayHQ has provided a new electronic computer scoring system, which replaces the previous Stadium Scoring system. Learn how to use the new system with this quick video tutorial: https://youtu.be/OdTboL_uYqk
Will fixtures change? We recommend that you check your competition fixtures regularly for any changes. We anticipate there may more changes to fixtures than usual as we return to competitions, but we will endeavour to keep these to a minimum.
