Urgent Message re: COVID19

Please see message below from Penny Radford, Chair of the MSDBA:

Dear All,It is with a sad heart that following official government advice issued on Monday 16 March, strongly urging people to avoid unnecessary travel and non-essential social gatherings, we regret to announce that MSDBA, has taken the decision to temporarily postpone all matches within the Mid Sussex League. We take the health and safety of our members (clubs) very seriously and we will continue to monitor the situation and the threat of COVID-19 globally with advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England, as well as that of the local government.It is our intention to arrange the re-commencement of matches as soon as possible, following further government advice. This would be subject to club agreements, court availability and time scales available to complete the season. Please await further announcements.Therefore, could you please cancel all match court bookings with immediate effect and circulate this email to your members, so that everyone is aware. We do hope that your venue will carry forward the booking for a later date but should you incur cancellation charges, MSDBA will cover those costs.Thank you for your understanding and support during these extraordinary times.
