Coronavirus and SAWGBA fixtures – UPDATE

The health and well being of players and their families has to come before badminton.
Some clubs are happy to play matches and will liaise with their venues until any blanket ban comes into force and some have serious concerns.
With all this considered the constitution allows us to postpone fixtures in situations like this. Any clubs unwilling to travel can let me know asap and I will postpone those fixtures until a later date.
Clubs that wish to carry on with their fixtures can do so but please follow the updated Public Health Wales advice.
Please understand that we would have preferred this came from Badminton Wales but there is no-one in the office to talk to,
I hope this helps in these really difficult circumstances.
Stay safe and well.

Coronavirus & SAWGBA Fixtures

Acting chairman Peter Genders has asked me to collect feedback about the continuation of our fixtures while the coronavirus pandemic continues.
If you have any concerns please reply and I will forward them to the rest of committee and then onto Badminton Wales.
Thank you
