The first round of the Junior County Championships has become the latest event to be called off under the terms of the Table Tennis England coronavirus cancellation policy for national events and leagues.

The event was scheduled for on October 10 but has been cancelled six weeks in advance, in accordance with the policy, as the current restrictions do not allow them to take place safely.

The first round of the Cadet County Championships was previously cancelled and the County Championships Committee is working proactively with Counties to format leagues in such sizes that they can be concluded on fewer dates, and towards the back end of the 2020/21 calendar – therefore it is hoped the loss of the first round of the Cadet and Junior sections will not impact unduly on activity.
