Basketball New Zealand is optimistic they will fill the bleachers for their domestic season.

Indoor sports were dealt a further blow yesterday with the government opting to maintain crowd restrictions at 200 people under the red traffic light system.

Netball's ANZ Premiership has ploughed on, despite the hit in ticket sales.

National Basketball League general manager Huw Beynon told the Mike Hosking Breakfast they're in a more fortunate position with the season starting April 28.

“We made the decision to push our league by three weeks, which has proven to be the right one the longer we’ve gone on, so that next decision making in ten days still has a little glimmer of hope for us.”
