Provisional Forward Tournament Schedule

Cautionary Notes

This provisional forward calendar is published here to assist:

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. 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 CA's collective memory, but are non-definitive and may be changed (temporarily or permanently) by the relevant CA committee(s). Each event has an Event Group, which together with the Scheduling Principles are used to avoid clashes between major events.

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.

2023 Scheduling Assumptions

Event Groups and Scheduling Principles

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 generated the following principles which have been confirmed by the relevant committees, and will apply from the 2020 season and were used as guidance for the 2019 calendar.

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). Qualifying events are not included.
  • Non-representative international events such as CA v 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, including the All-England handicap events, and GC B and C Series events and finals
No constraints
