It has been unanimously decided during the WCMDA Committee meeting held on 3rd June 2020 that the 2020 WCMDA Winter season is officially cancelled. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in place it was deemed to not be possible to play darts in pubs and clubs whilst adhering to these COVID restrictions. Hopefully the situation would improve in time for 2021. Thank you.
To all WCMDA clubs & members
Following the decisions made by the State & Federal Governments along with the Health Departments, the current season will be suspended until such time it is safe to resume.
The decision to suspend the season was agreed by all club delegates and the committee at last nights delegates meeting due to venues not being open and clubs not having enough players for teams. At this stage we have suspended the season until Friday 1st May 2020 with the hope of resuming on Thursday 7th May 2020. The committee along with club delegates will be meeting again on Wednesday 15th April 2020 to discuss where things are with this situation. Fixtures will remain as they are for the time being however discussions on what the season may look like will happen over the coming weeks.
We hope everyone stays safe and well over the coming weeks and will update everyone after the next meeting.
