‘With the Government announcement on Monday that restrictions will now not be lifted until the 19th July we have no realistic alternative other than to cancel the meetings planned for 30th June and 14th July, assuming there are no further changes the entries for the meeting on 28th July will open on the 15th July. We sincerely apologise for these further delays and are as frustrated as you athletes, but sure you will understand that opening our clubhouse is not permitted and erecting marquees as we did for the recent BMC meeting is just not achievable midweek nor financially viable.’
Please note that the fixture dates are currently provisional and that event start times are approximate.
Entry costs at Wednesday Open Graded Meetings are £7.00 for one event and £5.00 for each additional event.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ENTRIES FOR 2021 ARE ONLINE ONLY AND NO ENTRIES WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE DAY.
We regret we are not able to offer refunds for online entries as we still have to pay for the administration costs.
