While this tournament is typically hosted in the June-July school holidays, it had to be moved to December due to the Queensland Government’s Covid-19 guidelines.
Covid-19 regulations mandate a fixed number of participants in the venue as of the 14th October 2020. Unlike previous years, this tournament faces a potential limit on numbers. However, it is hoped that this cap will be lifted prior to the start of the event. Nevertheless, each respective flyer states the maximum number of players that will be accepted. This is subject to change depending on the most recent government regulations two weeks prior to the tournament’s commencement. Participants will be accepted from 12pm the 21st October until the respective cap is met. For any queries/concerns, please contact queenslandjuniorchamps@caq.org.au
