Revision of 10 year Championship Schedule

WCF 10 year Championship Schedule - coronavirus pandemic announcement

Following the postponement of the lower Tiers of the GC WTC, the WCF Management Committee has consulted with the Event Hosts for the WCF Events planned to be held in 2020 to 2023.  All parties unanimously agree that the most practical and appropriate response to the impact of the pandemic is to decide now to postpone all WCF Events by one year, starting with the Women’s Association World Championship due to be held in November 2020.  It is hoped this will provide sufficient time for the situation to stabilise.

However, it is also recognised that one or more further one year postponements may be necessary if the global situation does not improve sufficiently to make holding international events feasible.  The situation will be kept under review.

The initial amendment of the 10 year Championship Schedule is as follows.  Please note that the revised dates are approximate and subject to detailed agreement with the relevant Event Hosts who have all indicated their support.

The MacRobertson Shield is due to be held in England in 2025 which will be the centenary of its founding.  It was also agreed that, if possible, this event should still be held in 2025 with the forward calendar being revised slightly to accommodate this.”
