Grand Finals 2020 Change of Date

The 2020 Grand Finals will now take place on 10th - 11th October 2020 at Addington Equestrian Centre (same venue).

In these unprecedented times, we have been faced with many cancellations throughout North America & the UK, as well as the World Agility Open in the Netherlands. To clarify the WAO situation, handlers from over 40 nations had qualified to compete in May to represent their country and invested large sums of non-refundable money in travel, hotels and team uniforms. Due to these factors postponing, rather than cancelling, WAO was something we have worked very hard to do.

The only viable dates offered to us, where we felt this crisis might have subsided and the teams were still able to travel before winter sets in, was the last weekend in October. Unfortunately this meant it became logistically impossible to run the Grand Finals on its scheduled date, as most of our organising team would have to leave over the GF weekend for the WAO. We are grateful to Addington for being able to offer us an alternative date but again we had very limited options.

At this stage it is obviously unknown if the crisis will be over October and if we will have any shows to have qualifiers at. We will be looking to announce further decisions on the Grand Finals and the qualifiers mid April.

We hope the majority of our customers will understand why these changes have had to be made and hope everyone can be back enjoying their agility before too long.

Stay safe.

How pathetic of the venue owners who would be able to claim loss of trading through the government schemes anyway. Well done Greg and team for dpingvthexroghtcrhing and a absolutely understand and support your reasons for hanging on to make the call Here's to a quick resolution and return to some form of normality.

They will give a refund but will leave it As long as possible.. Obviously if they leave too long. UKA and others who have paid fees may have to go to crown court when they reopen and failing that to the bailiffs as am sure the government and the law will be on the side of uka.. Hopefully this won't have to happen as obviously would like to use the showground next year...

Thank you for the update and shame on Newbury Showground. But ultimately their loss if you, and others, go elsewhere next year

How much? 😮 You'll have to come here next year, Greg!!!

Thank you. Fingers crossed everything is soon resolved.

Well done keeping us all up to date in difficult times.
