To All Club Managers/Secretaries, Captains, Players and Affiliated Members
Following the latest Government Directives regarding the Covid-19 virus, the L&R LCGA Executive have agreed that special measures are needed regarding our programme of County events.
The following is therefore now issued as the L&R LCGA position on matches and tournaments. Please note that this is the current status, as the situation is fluid our position may change subject to any new developments. We will obviously comply with any safeguarding measures taken by clubs or counties in relation to playing matches or tournaments.
L&RLCGA Policy re Covid-19 – Matches and Tournaments
L&RLCGA are mindful of the current health requirements being published by Public Health England in relation to the Covid-19 virus. As a result, we feel it is necessary to make immediate changes to our diary of matches and tournaments for all sections. The following list of fixtures covers March, April and May 2020
Mind Fit Day with Tony Westwood for 1st Team Sunday 22nd March (Postponed)
1st Team Coaching at Woodhall Spa with Richard Reed 2nd & 3rd May (Postponed)

Sunday 19th April LRGU Seniors v County Ladies at Lingdale (Cancelled)
1st Fixture 14th May, Fixed date (Still in place)
No Handicap games are to be played during the month of April and as it is highly likely that restrictions will still be in place consideration should be given to rearranging those planned for early May.
To assist in the rearranging of Fixtures the Handicap league will now run until the end of September as opposed to the end of August.
If you do rearrange any Handicap fixtures, please ensure that you notify the Competitions Sec – see contact details below.
