IF YOU HAVE ENTERED ONE OF THESE TOURNAMENTS THEN PLEASE WAIT FOR THE TOURNAMENT ORGANISERS TO CONTACT YOU.  Refunds may be offered depending on the financial costs incurred by each Tournament Organiser.


As we are unaware of when the COVID-19 situation will improve, we have also made the decision to defer the entry for tournaments on May 2nd/3rd until at least 23rd March, so these will not be available to enter tomorrow evening as planned.

The BFA AGM will also no longer be held at Lode Heath School on 4th April.  Instead this will be delivered in an online format with further details to follow.


In view of the current situation we are also reviewing the BFA Championships qualifying criteria and further details will follow once we have more information.


Regarding training, please take heed of the latest government advice and make sensible decisions regarding your training activities.


We will continue to monitor the situation closely, have regular discussions and inform the membership as soon as is practicably possible as and when we need to issue further advice.
