First Shropshire and now the British association have opted to call off their competitions this year due to pandemic.

Shropshire chiefs cancelled all their comps, including the County Merit and County Cup, earlier this month – and now the sport’s governing, the BCGBA, have followed suit.

That applies to the men's, ladies and junior county championships and all other British events.

“Following discussions and a county level survey on BCGBA competitions, we have decided to roll over all competitions to 2021,” confirmed a spokesman for the governing body.

“As for the 2019 Ladies Champion of Champions (due to have been played on April 18 after being abandoned due to waterlogging at the Waterloo last September), it is hoped we will be able to arrange a suitable date later in the year to complete this competition, subject to restrictions allowing.

Sir John Bayley and St Georges will retain their places in the World Club Championships qualifiers, which have also been rolled over to 2021.
