Tournament Entry Fee Donation Scheme

Clubs that were due to host tournaments may be particularly badly hit financially by the Coronavirus outbreak The CA has therefore enhanced the online Tournament Entry System to enable players withdrawing from a tournament, or unable to play in one that has been cancelled, to donate their entry fees to the club, should they wish to do so, rather than be refunded. This is done by providing an additional tick box when confirming withdrawal from a tournament to indicate that the entry fee is to be donated. Donations will be paid to the club in full, without any administration fee or levy. Donations of entry fees for CA Organised Tournaments will go to the club that was going to host them, rather than the CA itself.

We hope that many players will wish to support the clubs that host tournaments in this way.
