Today there was a discussion about the coming weather and the likely effects on the lawns for the competition on Friday.

With heavy rain on Thursday and very strong winds, we felt the lawns were likely to be both very wet and covered in debris from trees etc. Conditions for play were likely to be difficult or unpleasant and importantly to cause unnecessary damage (32 players on 4 lawns all day) so we reluctantly decided to cancel the event.

Of course Friday may prove to be a lovely day but I think it is better to have clarity a day or two beforehand rather than leave a decision to the last minute.
