The Croquet Association (CA) and Cheltenham Croquet Club (CCC) are not confident that it will be practical to meet government COVID-19 guidelines for either amateur or elite sport on the scheduled dates. Without this confidence in our ability to ensure the safety of players and volunteers, the CA has postponed the 2020 AC Open Championships (both Singles and Doubles) to 1-6 September.
There is still considerable uncertainty about the feasibility of holding one or both Championships on these revised dates. The CA will, in consultation with CCC, review the situation nearer the time and make a decision and further announcement before the end of July. The revised Allocation, Closing and Draw date are now 4 August, 18 August and 19 August respectively.
