Following the measures adopted by most countries in the wake of the continued spread of Covid-19, it has been decided that entries to all SMPT events for 2020/21 will be suspended until further notice.
We wish to reiterate that ALL our events are still scheduled for their existing dates at present but felt it prudent that no guarantees should be made at this time and that this situation should be monitored on an ongoing basis.
The SMPT have been monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus and the responses from respective Governments & health agencies.
In light of the of the World Health Organisations decision to upgrade the Covid-19 virus to a global pandemic and with the UK Government's Chief Medical Officer’s timelines for the virus to reach its projected peak in the UK around the time of Belfast events we feel we have no other choice but to cancel the Belfast Open & World Masters on the 17th-19th April 2020.
The SMPT are closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus and any impact this might have on the running of the Belfast Open & World Masters in Belfast on 17-19th of April.
We are delighted to confirm the dates for the Belfast Open & World Masters for the 2019/20 season.
