The organising committee has cancelled all 2020 Taskers Trophy competitions.
We have been regularly reviewing the Covid-19 situation and even given the recent change in government guidance to allow some golf to be played we have concluded it is not practical or safe to conclude the competition this year given the restrictions, limitations on visitors at courses, the age group of our players, and time remaining to play this year.
The aim of our competition is to support junior golf in your county and we’d still like to achieve this objective this year without the playing of the competition. We have been in contact with many counties over this time who are concerned about the impact the Covid-19 situation will have on Junior Golf and also the overall impact it will have to golf in the long term.
With our objective, to support junior golf in your county, in mind, we are offering all teams a choice:
- Donate your entry fee directly to your county’s junior golf development, we will ensure 100% of your entry fee is sent to your county’s junior golf.
- Apply for a refund of your entry fee, including an option to make a donation to your county’s junior golf development.
We ask that you let us know your club and teams intention by 30th June 2020. Clubs and teams should let us know their intention by following the link provided in the cancellation email sent from the committee to all Team Captains and club contacts.
If teams do not let us know their intention by the 30th June we will donate their entry fee to their county’s junior golf by default and a refund cannot be requested after this date.
Our Sponsor Taskers UK has committed to providing the same financial support as every other year in hosting the competition and the committee will include this funding in the allocation to supporting junior golf in your county. Taskers as Hydraulic Engineers are also busy supporting our industries return to a new normal while also continuing the production and distribution of Spray Nine, Multi-Purpose Cleaner and Disinfectant products.
As a committee, this is a regrettable decision to take but we want you to know we have explored all options to try and resume play for this year but the health and welfare of our competitors coupled with restrictions in place at clubs including limiting visitors access are ultimately incompatible with concluding the 2020 Taskers Trophy competitions this year.
We know this decision for some will be disappointing that they cannot play and compete in our competitions this year and for others, it may provide assurance that we will not be expecting teams to travel and play competitive golf in the competition this year given the current Covid-19 situation.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this time and we will be in touch when we open entry for 2021 Taskers Trophy Competitions.
