Cancelled: Inter Regional Championships
24th March 2020
Dear athletes, parents, coaches, volunteers and regional chairs,
It is with great sadness that today we must inform you that the Inter Regional Championships (Due to take place on 23rd, 24th and 25th May at the National Volleyball Centre) have been cancelled.
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to escalate by the day, which is making the prospect of being able to host a competition that attracts so many people increasingly slim.
With the government yesterday instructing the public to remain at home for all but very limited purposes for the next 3 weeks, the opportunities for athletes to keep in shape so that they are ready for the competition are also limited.
We hope that by making this decision now that teams can minimise any potential costs incurred for the Inter Regional Championships.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult period.
Let’s stay safe, look after each other and keep active, however we can.
Sue Storey, Chief Executive of Volleyball England
