PBA eyeing Batangas City as possible training venue for teams

The PBA is now considering Batangas City as possible training venue for teams while the National Capital Region is still under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).

Commissioner Willie Marcial bared that he will speak with local government officials regarding the league’s desire to hold training sessions in their province.

Batangas is currently under the more relaxed General Community Quarantine (GCQ) which allows practices in small groups.

“Pupunta ako sa Batangas by Saturday, baka makasama si Gov. Alfrancis (Chua). Magkikita kami ni Congressman at ni Mayora (Beverley) Dimacuha doon at kakausapin na namin. Kakausapin din namin ang gym. May tatlong wooden court doon. Baka puwedeng magpractice yung mga teams, depende sa oras,” said Marcial during a virtual presser on Thursday.

The idea was broached by Chua who cited Batangas’ proximity to Metro Manila.

“In Batangas, they have three wooden courts. Kung pinayagan nila tayo mag-ensayo doon ng whole practice, the whole 12 teams, puwedeng sa team paikutin natin alternate. Kapag ginamit natin ‘yung SLEX, ang lapit na ng Batangas. Sobrang lapit na lang. Practice tapos uwian na. It depends kung papayagan. At least makapag-start na,” said Chua.

“Ang sabi ko lang sa kanila, ‘yung mga gusto nang mag-practice sa puwede nang mag-ensayo, ‘yung protocol lang ang sundin natin. Imbis na makabuti sa team nila, baka makasama sa buong PBA kasi kapag may nag-positive at hindi nila sinunod ang protocol, baka lalong magka-loko loko,” added the Brgy. Ginebra team governor.

Aside sa Batangas pwede din nila iconsider siguro yung Quezon sa south at yung Pampanga/Bataan in North. Sana they will allow to stay the teams for a couple of days or a week in the province para di naman sila mabugbog sa pagbiyahe para makapagpractice. Yung sa Batangas pwede nila ioocupy siguro yung 3 wooden courts 4 teams each like 6-8am 9-11am 12-2pm 3-5pm yung break in between para sa pagsanitize ng facilities
