We have had discussions with the ESMBA over the clash of dates for the World Masters Singles on the 23rd & 24th March. Due to the clash with the ESMBA’s National Mixed Fours and Under 18s the SMPT will be changing the date. We want to work with the ESMBA and all other NGB’s in order to promote the game. Both the SMPT and ESMBA are committed to working together, we both felt that putting players in the position of choosing what competition to play in on that weekend was not fair and could have an impact on the National Mixed Fours.
Regarding the new date and venue, we are looking into this and will have a statement ASAP regarding this. For any player who has already entered the World Masters Singles we will provide a refund or the player can transfer the entry to the new date once we have it.
Should you have any query please speak to Craig Burgess.
