League Statement – 17th March 2020

After a great deal of discussion a decision has been taken to bring the 2019/2020 season in the Bury and District Table Tennis League to an end, with immediate effect.

This action has been taken due to recent UK Government advice urging everyone to avoid unnecessary social contact in an effort to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  It also complies with Table Tennis England advice given at 11:00 on 17th March shown here

From Tuesday 17 March 2020, no outstanding league or cup matches, whether scheduled or rearranged, should be played.

The Closed Championships scheduled for Sunday 22 March will not be played. Anyone who has registered for the event will receive a full refund to the credit or debit card used to pay for entry to the event in the next 24-48 hours.

Finals Night, scheduled for Thursday 21 April is now cancelled.

This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, but our concern must be for the welfare of our members. 

The committee will adjudicate on final league positions, together with promotion and relegation matters over the next few weeks, updates will be available through the league website and Social Media.

We ask you and your families to stay safe during this time.

Regards

Bury & District Table Tennis League Committee
