Wee Wonders 2020 – CANCELLED30 Apr 2020
Sadly, The 2020 Wee Wonders Championships which was due to restart in June, will now be cancelled based on guidance from the UK Government, the health authorities & Public services. This is the first time in 26 years since the founding of Wee Wonders, that we have had to cancel it.
Having initially rescheduled the events from April to June in the hope of fitting in our 58 Qualifying events, 10 Regional Finals and Grand Final at Gullane, it is now not possible to do this safely as the Covid-19 pandemic continues.
Alasdair Good PGA Professional and Founder of Wee Wonders said, “We care passionately about our hugely popular and valuable event and have made this decision with a heavy heart. It is the golfing highlight of many wee golfers throughout Great Britain and Ireland as well as increasing numbers from Europe and the Middle East and it is those we feel for most. Not only is it a fun test of golfing skills but a much anticipated and enjoyable meeting of young friends and families from around the World.”
“There are numerous multi dependent arrangements that go into organising a major junior golf event of this scale. We rely on the support of many PGA Professionals, Junior Organisers, Golf’s Governing Bodies and Golf Clubs and it would be unreasonable to place any additional demands on them when they have far more urgent priorities to deal with. We are extremely grateful to all of them for their assistance and co-operation throughout this process and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
“Most of all we would like to thank our young boys and girls for their support and understanding. At this challenging time we have to reprioritise and to let people focus on keeping themselves and their families healthy and safe.”
We will continue to update our website and social media with golfing tips and funny bits to help get through to a time when we will be back golfing again.
We are currently looking into different options regarding the age categories for next year as we know 2020 was the final year competing in Wee Wonders for many children. More information about this will be announced soon.
Regarding entry fee’s, we are happy to offer those who have already paid, a credit for the 2021 Championships. However, if you would prefer a refund, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can process this for you.
Finally, we would like to thank you for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times. We hope that we can all soon return to playing the game we all enjoy, love and miss so much.
