I understand that the Gibraltar organisers were having preliminary meetings last week to try and assess their options, so probably nothing is decided yet. The Gibraltar government is the chief sponsor, so they will tread carefully.
I would have thought John Saunders may have some information.

Re: Manx Championship 2020 9th to 11th October

IoM 7 day quarantine, but it is just for IoM residents returning Guernsey, which has an air bridge with the island, introduced a similar approach last month The island's borders were closed to most on 27 March but reopened to residents on 20 July so it would appear that UK players can't enter As I ...

Re: Membership Renewal

Have the ECF given any indication of how many members are renewing? The website does seem a little temperamental, & any reference to last years membership (2019-2020) is not there. I believe the ECF inputted some memberships manually last year. Nobody know yet because of Covid, no one has the answe...
