COVID 19 Update – 31st May 2020
We hope you are all well and safe during this time. With the recent statement released by the ABSC (click here to view), and after speaking to clubs about their current situation and plans to reopen with the reduced government restrictions moving forward, we have decided the following:
- The Club Leagues will not resume in 2020 and the current Seasons have been cancelled.
- Any Club League rounds that have been played will still incur Team fees and invoices will be issued as per normal.
- 2020 QBSA Membership for both Clubs and Players will be rolled into 2021. If you have already paid for 2020, this will also cover your 2021 fees.
- QBSA Membership Cards will not be printed in 2020 and will start in 2021.
In regards to tournaments, we hope to hold our State Residents Championships (Snooker, Billiards, Women’s) by the end of 2020 if possible. However, these may be in a different format than in previous years. More details will be released regarding this moving forward as we know more.
We are also looking at holding our AGM by the end of 2020, possibly in November, but this may be limited to delegates only in person with others able to dial in to listen. More details will be released as we know more.
We hope that all clubs can reopen and resume social play as soon as possible in a safe manner and by following the current government guidelines. As mentioned in the ABSC statement, we recommend you visit the Sports Australia website and follow the toolkit which provides information and resources to help players and venues safely resume activity when they are allowed to do so. The toolkit is available here https://www.sportaus.gov.au/return-to-sport
A cuesports specific guideline package is being developed by the ABSC currently, and we will send out once completed.
Thank you for your continued support, and please continue to stay safe during this time. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
