Atlantic Senior Fours Update - 1st June 2020
The ASF 2020 Organising Committee have been monitoring the ongoing outbreak of Covid-19 and the responses from respective Governments & health agencies.
It is apparent that recovery from this pandemic will be a slow process, and at this moment there is certainly no clear guidance around what is safe and what is a risk.
Guidance differs from country to country and countries all have different restrictions regarding travel. Currently there is no clear timescale as to when unlimited travel without restrictions will be permitted or even available.
The Committee consider that the safety of all concerned is their top priority and that there are too many variables to continue planning for 2020. The decision to cancel the inaugural 2020 event was not taken lightly and is a massive disappointment to us but was taken with the best interests of all involved, Players, Sponsors and Supporters.
However, even with the current global uncertainty we have agreed to continue to work towards staging the event in OCTOBER 2021.
The exact dates for the Championship plus the complete information package will be finalised over the next few weeks and a further statement will be issued.
The Organising Committee want to thank everyone for all their support to date and are determined in the forthcoming months to work very hard to deliver a tournament that the World’s Senior players will enjoy and will be proud to participate in.
Obviously, the Facebook page and the ASF website will not be updated as frequently as they would have been but just because they are quiet does not mean we aren’t still here!
October 2021 may seem a long way off but it will be here before we know it! We promise to update you when we are able so please continue to follow the pages and as always we are happy to try and answer any queries you may have.
In the meantime, we hope it won’t be too long before everyone is back on the greens (wherever you are in the World), enjoying the sport we love.
