Provisional Forward Tournament Schedule for CA Events

Cautionary Notes

Please note that this information is provisional. Dates and venues are subject to change, particularly for later years. Any forward planning should bear this in mind. It is published here to assist:

Dates and venues are finalised at the time the fixtures book is published for the appropriate year. In the event of any discrepancy, the fixtures book should be considered correct. Scheduling Assumptions are recorded to aid the collective memory, but are non-definitive and may be changed (temporarily or permanently) by the relevant CA committee(s).

Applications to Host Events

Applications to host an event should be made to the relevant tournaments committee. Requests will be solicited by the CA Office 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.

Responses to the current bidding cycle are requested by the 25 January 2019. Clubs should respond to the CA office.

Provisional Calendar

This table lists all CA events and selected club and international events. It is sorted in date order for the current season.

TBA: To be arranged. Bids will be solicited at the appropriate time by the CA Office or by the Tournament Director. Where a provisional allocation is shown, this indicates a greater potential for change than for other entries.

N/A: Not Applicable. This indicates that this event is not expected to take place in that year.

Event 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.

Group Description Events Scheduling Principle
Group A Fully representative international events
  • AC and GC Home Internationals
  • AC: Maugham Salver, Solomon Trophy
  • GC: England v Spain
  • MacRobertson Shield and Openshaw Shield in years held
  • WCF singles events (to the extent that the CA has influence over the dates)
  • Note that non-representative international events such as CA v (e.g.) CAI are not included in this group
Group A events should not clash with each other
Group B CA's Flagship Events
  • AC and GC Eights (treating the suite of eights in each code as a single multi-venue event)
  • AC and GC Opens
  • AC Mens and Womens (Singles and Doubles)
  • GC English Nationals (Singles [Ascot Cup] and Doubles)
  • AC and GC Inter-Counties
  • AC and GC Inter-Club Finals
  • AC and GC IPD Coaching Weekend (one per code)
Group B events should not clash with each other, or with any group A event
Group C Other Championships
  • AC: Regional Championships (West, East, North, South of England) and C2 Championships (Coles, Surrey, East Midlands)
  • GC: Whole of the GC Championship Series [8x Ascot Cup Qualifying Events]
  • Other CA events: Peel Memorials, Challenge and Gilbey, South of England
Group C events should not clash with an event of the same code from either group A or B
Group D Age-Specific Events
  • AC and GC Juniors, Students, Seniors, Veterans
Group D events should not clash with the matching group D event of the other code
Group E Other
  • Everything Else
No constraints
