The proposed date for the British Open Championships for 2018 is Sunday 18th November.
For the last three years this “Open” event has been in June. However having listened to feedback from many young adults and coaches this is not an ideal time in the academic term due to revision and exams, resulting in keen players not being able to participate.
The BAA Nationals is also in March which means two senior events in the BAA calendar grouped too closely together. Hopefully changing the date for next year and subsequent years to November will encourage more participants from both the BAA and SAUK.
When this competition was first established it was jointly funded by the BAA and SAUK. However in the last two years the BAA has fully financed the events and covered the loses incurred without asking for a contribution from SAUK. Unfortunately this has been an oversight on my part, as the competition coordinator but will not be pursued by the BAA.
I would appreciate if you could add the British Open Championships on the 18th November date to next years SAUK calendar. The venue is yet to be confirmed but will be somewhere in the South (and North in 2019).
