New dates for Northumbria Masters

The Northumbria Masters has announced re-scheduled dates of 17th-21st February 2021 at the Novotel Newcastle Airport, the same venue as for last year’s congress. Due to government rules on public gatherings and social distancing, this year’s Northumbria Masters, which was due to be held on 27th-31st August 2020, had to be postponed.

Northumbria Masters tournament director Tim Wall said, ‘In these difficult times for everyone it’s important to stay safe, and there was no question of going ahead with an international congress while we are in the midst of this horrific battle with Coronavirus. I am happy that our partners, Novotel Newcastle Airport, have agreed to re-schedule the Northumbria Masters for the half-term school holiday week in February 2021. We are hopeful that by then, the conditions will exist for over-the-board tournaments to go ahead safely.’
