Provisional Forward Tournament Schedule for CA Events

Please note that these are provisional dates and venues, and are subject to change, particularly for later years. They are provided to assist players with their personal plans, and to assist clubs to avoid clashes when planning their own tournaments. The Western, Eastern and Northern Championships and some international events are not CA events, but are listed here for the same reasons.

Dates and venues are finalised at the time the fixtures book is published for the appropriate year; any information published here in advance should be considered provisional, and any forward planning should bear this in mind. In the event of any discrepancy, the fixtures book should be considered correct.

Applications to host an event should be made to the relevant tournaments committee; requests will be solicited at the appropriate time. The lawns column is an approximation of the number of lawns required to host the event and is provided as guidance to clubs.

*: Groups

Following a growing number of clashes between events, the CA has conducted a review, during 2018, of the tournament calendar to see what could be done. This has generated the following principles. Subject to confirmation by the relevant committees, the intent is that these will apply for the 2020 season. They are published here for information, in order to obtain feedback from players and as guidance to clubs planning.
