Greyhound Clubs Australia (GCA) has made the decision to cancel this year’s Nationals.
The uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 unfortunately has left no option but to abandon plans to host the event which would have been conducted at Wentworth Park in late August.
“It will be the first time the Nationals haven’t been held since the concept’s commencement in 1965,” said GCA Chairman Les Bein. “Whilst we are very disappointed, the health and well-being of our participants is of utmost priority.”
The cancellation follows on-going consultation and the unanimous agreement of host club NSW GBOTA, GRNSW and Greyhounds Australasia.
“It will be at the discretion of the various jurisdictions as to whether State series are still run and that advice will come from individual controlling authorities in due course,” Les said.
