A reduced programme has already been agreed, with teams playing only seven games each organised in eight divisions (five men’s, three women’s). That is due to start in late October.
“We recognise that, for all sorts of reasons, this may not happen and that we may need to target a January start,” explained chairman David Andrews. “For the time being, however, the committee decided to retain October as our start date – to give it every chance to happen, should significant changes occur over the next few weeks.
“The situation regarding issues such as the availability of pools should be clearer within a few weeks. The committee will be meeting again on 26 July and will make a definite decision then on where we go from here.”
