Following our announcement last week when we suspended our remaining events for the 2019/2020 season due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, we want to reassure EPSB members that we will continue to monitor the situation on a weekly basis.
Several of our remaining competitions are in a second phase, while others have not yet started. We are fully committed to completing all these tournaments, but how we go about this is currently unclear. However, should the situation extend into the summer, we may need to consider other options.
EPSB director Simon Berrisford said “These are very difficult and uncertain times for us all. Health is always the top priority, but we understand and appreciate that players and venues may be concerned about their future career prospects and livelihoods. The situation we are in is unprecedented for modern times, with all responsible sporting events in the UK either put on hold or cancelled. For the integrity of our season, we whole-heartedly aim to honour all remaining competitions, but should the current action extend into the middle of the year, we may have to review our plans.
“We will make you all aware of any future updates, but in the meantime, please stay safe.”
