All these competitions/clubs will be following the guidelines we have issued regarding competition, have completed a return to competition assessment and shared this with us, and will feedback to us to further refine our competition guidelines and so that we can share these with other clubs. Some of these competitions may exceed the current limit of 30 people, and have permission to do this. Again, this will help us moving towards larger COVID-secure competitions. We have to do this in a sustained and sensible way, rather than rushing ahead. The recent announcement has shown that we may see further restrictions should we all not follow the guidelines.

If your club is thinking about hosting a competition, or have a competition coming up, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and we will be able to provide guidance and help. Please also inform us if your competition is not going ahead, and if you paid a record status fee, let us know whether you require a refund or would like to transfer to 2021 – email

View the competition guidelines we have issued, or get in touch with our Events Manager – Jon Nott – via email if you require further assistance.
