Proposed events calendar 2021

Following the First Minister’s statements this week we want to provide something to look forward to during these days in lockdown and to reassure our members that we are committed to hosting events in 2021, when restrictions allow. Our primary focus as the first step will be supporting and encouraging clubs to restart with local events and re-engage their members. We will provide advice and support to clubs  to ensure everyone has confidence that all measures have been taken to allow for the safe return of our sport.

And looking beyond local events, we want to give our commitment to supporting the return of regional and national events when we are permitted to do so.
