The League Committee has decided that it will not be possible to complete the League programme, in view of the continuing Covid-19 crisis. It is unlikely that indoor sport will be permissible again for some considerable time, The Committee concluded that the only fair way to end the league programme was to limit the Premier division and Division 1 to the first 19 scheduled matches (out of 21) and Divisions 2-6 to the first 17 scheduled matches (out of 18). This means that some matches, which had been played in advance of the scheduled dates and some on 16 March, will be disregarded. The league tables and averages will be adjusted accordingly.

There will be no Top 8 events this season. These would ordinarily have been played at the beginning of April.
