The plan is to run the event without the requirement for COVID Testing. Should by the time of the event Government determine testing should be required this will be provided at no cost to the player. Players will be required to adhere to any venue policies in place at the time.
The decision to delay the event was made so that the event can be run “covid restrictions and testing free”. Hopefully this will possible.
There will be a Super Seniors event going on as well but the entries for this one are already closed.
