Fixtures Update 2020/2021
MCC’s Tennis & Squash sub-committee have announced that they have decided to cancel all fixtures due to be played at Lord’s until the end of 2020. I think that they are the first club too do so. They, and indeed all of us, are aware that some clubs are permitting matches to be held despite the pandemic, albeit on a socially distanced basis, but they feel “…that the social aspect of matches is an essential part of the day and it is becoming clear that this will not be possible this year.” The only Dedanist fixture at Lord’s, in the current season, is scheduled for Saturday 6th February 2021 against MCC so let us hope that takes place.
In addition to the above Simon Mansfield, co-organiser of the Tournoi des Trois Tripots 2021, scheduled for October in South West France has advised that it has been cancelled. As I recently reported the TTT had been rescheduled as an alternative tournament to a lesser degree than was originally intended. Simon says, in his postponement email, that the hosts are likely to be in Pau over the weekend of 10th/11th October and if anyone happens to find themselves in the region (perchance!) they will be more than welcome to play on the Sunday.
1st October 2020
In agreement with Radley (pupils) and Middlesex we have cancelled the fixtures due to be played on Sunday 8th November and Saturday 21st November respectively. I am in discussion with Wellington about the Saturday 5th December match which is the last of our fixtures for 2020. We all hope that we will be able to resume our matches scheduled for 2021.
