Communication from CEO and Fixture Sec YCCGBA
Date 6th June 21
Audience : All Very Important
YCCGBA Cup Competitions
Regretfully we have cancelled all YCCGBA team competitions for 2021 (Yorkshire Cup Hutchinson Cup etc)
There are several reasons for this :
Teams not wishing to travel into Kirklees area to play at greens in the area
Reluctance to play against clubs travelling from the area.
Clubs not adhering to current guidance for Track and Trace (QR Codes and collecting contact information) * see below
‘Covid Police’ visiting venues and issuing guidance for non compliance which may result in clubs leagues being closed down.
On balance it was felt it was not in the majorities interest to continue and therefore all entries will be carried over to 2022.
We are now aiming to run this over the August Bank Holiday weekend when it is hoped local restrictions are lifted.
We will open up entries again and the draw will be redone with qualifiers on either the Friday or Saturday evenings at different venues. The fixture secretary will communicate further details in the coming weeks. (Any entries that have been paid and participants are unable to play on the new date will be refunded)
*(QR codes and Track and Trace)
The link below will allow you to make your own QR code for your venue
It is a requirement that all players and spectators must either scan the QR code or leave contact details which need to be retained for 21 days as per guidance issued previously
In the last few days there has been incidents involving the ‘Covid Police’ who have visited clubs in the Yorkshire region and found several breeches of the guidelines, with the clear outcome that clubs and leagues will be shut down if this persists.
For the avoidance of doubt if your venue serves drinks be it alcohol or non alcoholic and or food then this must be table service and the drinks consumed at a table. It is not permitted for these drinks to be consumed around the green. Take-away drinks are permitted and should be in disposable containers.
In one of the instances reported above it was suggested by the ’Covid Police’ that the players own drinks must be consumed at a table, this is not our understanding and we are seeking further guidance on this.
