World Disability Billiards and Snooker (WDBS) has today announced that the upcoming Derby Open scheduled to run from 15-17 May 2020 will not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In view of the current position, taking into account UK government advice and further anticipated restrictions, the WDBS board has taken the unanimous decision not to proceed with this event.
The health and well-being of our players (some of whom have ongoing health issues linked to their disability) and officials is of the utmost importance to us and therefore we consider this to be the correct course of action at this time.
All players who have currently entered the event will receive a full refund of their entry fees shortly.
Further information as to future events will be released in due course and we would like to thank the team at the Cueball Derby for their support. We look forward to returning to the venue later in the year for our planned Groups 1-5 event.
