Frequently Asked Questions Competitions The situation relating to the Coronavirus is an unprecedented one, which has had a huge impact on the delivery of our competition season and courses. We have outlined some questions and answers to help clarify information relating to competitions. We have taken the fairest approach as the 2019/20 season was not completed and to reduce the impact on the 2020/21 competition season. Competitions The competition I entered has been cancelled – how do I get my refund? Please email [email protected] to request the refund of your entry fee.

When is the deadline for refund requests to be received by Boccia England? Friday 26 June 2020. I have requested a refund, how long will it take to process? We aim to process refunds within two weeks. Is it possible to carry my payment forward to next year? Unfortunately, it is not possible as the Competition Calendar for the 2020/21 season has not yet been finalised. When will the Competition Calendar for the 2020/21 season be available? We plan to release the Calendar by 1 July 2020 – pending the Coronavirus situation. Will the BE Cup Finals be played, as it affects possible qualification into the UK Championships? We are investigating the option to host a BE Cup Finals later in the year, subject to the Coronavirus situation.

As above, we are reviewing the situation on a monthly basis and will update players when this information is available. I qualified for the Heathcoat Finals, but they have been cancelled. Will I have to play in Heathcoat Cup Qualifiers next season, to hope to qualify for the 2021 Finals? Yes, it is not possible to carry forward your qualification into the 2021 Finals, because of competition capacity. Boccia League – National League We are currently considering implications for the National League and will communicate further in four weeks’ time. Boccia League – Super League Will you be promoting / relegating any Teams between Divisions One and Two or relegating to National League for the next season?

Do we get an automatic qualification place for the 2021 final? Unfortunately, we do not have capacity to invite automatic qualifiers to the 2021 Schools finals. How will this affect the 2020/21 competitions? We will be in contact with the Schools competition organisers in July to share the plans for the 2020/21 season. Plans will be dependent on the Coronavirus situation and we will be reviewing the situation on a monthly basis. We are continuing to monitor the Coronavirus situation closely on a regular basis and will provide updates to this document where necessary.
