Following today’s update from the PM and latest UK government advice, I regret to announce that the International Weekend of Petanque planned for 8-10 May 2020 at Worthing is now cancelled due to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We will contact everyone who has entered and will arrange for refunds as soon as practical. It is not necessary to contact SCPA to request a refund, we will proactively issue refunds for all entrants.
We realise that some competitors will have already booked accommodation and may lose-out financially, but we have to accept that it is simply impossible for us to run the competition this year. We would suggest that anyone who has booked “non-refundable” accommodation or travel should still contact the company they booked with, as many companies are adopting a flexible approach during these extraordinary times and may well offer a refund or opportunity to re-book for a later date.
Thank you to everyone who entered and supported this event and we hope to see you next year.
President, Southern Counties Petanque Association
