|Head Coach||Ryan Petrik|
|Venue||WA Basketball Centre|
|Finals||Did not qualify|
The 2020 season will mark the first season with Ryan Petrik as head coach, after he overtook the role from Andy Stewart who spent five seasons in the position. In November 2020, the Lynx announced that local mining and development company, Westgold Resources Limited, would serve as naming rights partners for the upcoming season.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a North Queensland hub is set to host the season. The season was originally 2020–21 and would be traditionally played over several months across the summer, however this seasons scheduling has been condensed. The six-week season will see Townsville, Cairns and Mackay host a 56-game regular season fixture, plus a four-game final series (2 x semi-finals, preliminary final and grand final). Each team will contest 14 games starting on 12 November, with the grand final scheduled for 20 December.

A council report has detailed a proposal to host, and be central to, the 2020/21 WNBL season within a coronavirus 'bubble'. It's understood the WNBL has plans to host the games wholly within North Queensland, taking advantage of state government grants funding.
