Update on Opens and other CA Tournaments
The status of all future CA events remains uncertain. The CA's approach is to take into account the views of the host club when evaluating government advice, and in particular any restrictions on sports fixtures, club operations, player travel, accommodation and hospitality.
Further to the immediate response to cancel all CA tournaments to the end of May, the following events have subsequently been cancelled, in consultation with the host club:
- The AC Men's and Women's Championship 10-14 June
- The AC Veterans Championship 22-27 June
In addition, the following international events have been cancelled in consultation with the relevant nations:
- AC Home Internationals, Ireland, 6-7 June
- England v Spain GC Test, Hurlingham, 12-14 June
- GC Home Internationals, Nailsea, 18-19 July
The GC Open Championships has been reduced to 4 days (singles only) and postponed to 13-16 August.
The AC Open Championships has been postponed to 1-6 September.
For all future events, we intend to make a decision prior to the Allocation Date or 4 weeks prior to the event (whichever comes later) and we continue to advise that entrants and other parties avoid committing to non-refundable expenditure until that date. We will endeavour to avoid short-notice changes closer to an event, but this may be unavoidable if we have to react to changes in government advice in the immediate lead-up to or during an event.
