It hardly needs saying that the last few months have been a very difficult and challenging time for all of us. Although my instinctual response is to hold a National Vintage Games in 2020 that honours that spirit in some way, and brings us together in a mood of celebration, and defiance, this will not be possible.
The decision to postpone the event is due to the potential impact of the illness on our sporting community, and because the quality that makes our event so special – amassing together to celebrate our love of sport – runs contrary to sound advice about overcoming the virus.
With an eye to the future, we have a provisional date pencilled in for mid-September 2021, and I will update the website closer to the time.
Meanwhile, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well, and we look forward to welcoming you again in happier times.
