Latest WPBSA / EPSB Guidance
The HBSA intends to respond to COVID-19 in accordance with guidance from our governing body, which for us is the EPSB, here: https://www.epsb.co.uk/play/covid-19-guidance/
HBSA's Latest position
League Snooker. Normal start date for 20/21 league has been postponed. The main contingency is to run the second-half of the season only. Due to the rapidly changing picture we have no option but to wait until nearer the season start date, at which point we will consider the guidance in force at that time and make a decision accordingly.
Competitions. Currently on hold. Prior to restarting HBSA will issue further guidance to include (for example) what players should do if they do not feel safe to play.
What Clubs need to do
HBSA can only rule on league games and competitions that HBSA has organised. Clubs should continue make their own decisions regarding the playing of 'casual' snooker, bearing in mind Government and EPSB announcements & in light of their own risk assessments.
In order to restart Competitions (and complete the League registrations and fixture lists) we'll need an official from each Club to confirm: ·
Each Club should therefore email the League Secretary with a response to each of these points here: https://huddersfieldsnooker.com/contact.aspx
As stipulated by the Government, every Club must agree its own procedures as a condition of opening, so please respect this and anyone trying to enforce it.
