The England Open and England National Singles have once again been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it has been announced.
Originally set to take place in June, the events were rescheduled for September 11-13 but now they are set to go ahead potentially in December ‘or as soon as is possible’.
Jim Williams and Beau Greaves were the victors in the England Open last year after seeing off World Champion Wayne Warren and Queen of the Palace, Fallon Sherrock respectively.
Tommy Thompson, chairman of England Darts said the following on social media: “Due to the very uncertain times with the ramifications of the current Covid-19 pandemic, and with the restrictions placed by our government, England Darts in conjunction with Bunn Leisure have decided that for the safety of our players and their staff this year’s events will no longer take place as scheduled in September 2020.
“We can only thank our loyal supporters from near and far who year-on-year return to Selsey, and hopefully we can arrange the full schedule of darts and entertainment in December, or as soon as is possible at Bunn Leisure, Selsey – the home of England Darts.”
