Calendar of Events Update

For the beginning of the season 2020-21, the Match Committee has released a partial calendar covering the period Oct 1 to Dec 31 2020.  This is in reply to the unusual COVID situation we find ourselves in. Some events for that period are postponed ones from the current calendar and some the usual annually scheduled events.

The situation particularly at ACA and Interstate level is changing frequently, thus this may continue to affect the new calendar. Players should check the website frequently for changes.
