The committee is hopeful that it will be able to organise competitions later in 2021. However the timing of any proposed events will depend on the covid situation and when training and competitions are permitted.

Based on the assumption that the Worlds will be held in October we have decided that the selection date will be immediately after the Guildford International (w/e 1st August). We also hope to run the Nationals from 9-11th July, and there is a possibility of an earlier competition.

Selection will use a points system based on competitions that may include the 2020 Nationals and 2020 Guildford, as well as the possibility of discretionary selection for some places.

Final details will be made available once we have a clearer picture of the situation.
