The 27th WALG Championship ... POSTPONED TO 2021
ST JEAN, 09/04/2020
Dear left-handed golfers … dear participants,
The global outbreak of COVID19 added to its international economic impact has lead us to suspend the organization of the 27th edition of the WALG (World Association of Left Handed Golfers) scheduled in Paris from the 17th to the 20th of August.
In agreement with the WALG, we made the decision to postpone the event to 2021. This 27th edition is postponed and not cancelled and shall be played in Paris Mid-August 2021, subject to the availability of golf courses.
The French association and the organizing committee of the competition are really sorry about this, but in this context of the exceptional current public health situation, we have no other options.
Our French association has already invested an important part of the event budget. In this respect, in agreement with the WALG, your registration and its payment for this year will be secured for the 2021 edition. All of the planned services will be maintained in 2021, both for the competition and the side events included.
Should you request a refund for you 2020 registration, a cancellation fee of 8% will be applied on each registration (excluding bank fees and exchange fees).
The refund of your 2020 registration will be made by check to the French participants and by bank transfer for the international players (please attach your bank account details to your refund request email).
The cancellation of your room booked at the MERDIEN hotel will be done automatically and you will receive an individual confirmation email of this cancellation.
In addition to the support of the WALG, we are following the recommendation of the French Golf Federation in order to project us towards a successful 2021 edition of this World Championship.
This decision is effective from today, and we thank you in advance for your understanding and support.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones all over the world and we look forward to meeting you in 2021 with great pleasure.

Good Morning /Evening ~
To all WALG Delegates and Country secretaries
At the instigation of President Dominique Lacan a short Video Conference was called for last evening to discuss the postponement of the W.A.L.G Event scheduled for Paris.
According to W.A.L.G. Policy and Decisions Items 1 and 2 which state when the WALG decide on a venue that venue should stand, and once a Tournament Date and Venue is Confirmed the Date and Venue cannot be changed without the Chairman and Secretary being consulted.
In attendance at the meeting were: President Dominique Lacan, Chairman Richard Davison, French Representative Philippe Sourisseau and myself, Secretary Nigel Messenger.
Chairman Richard thanked Dominique for instigating the meeting and after a solid discussion it was resolved that the Tournament which was to be held in August 2020 be "Postponed" until a similar time in 2021.
We trust you all understand this decision was not made lightly as the health and well being of our members is paramount.
Dominique and Philippe will be in contact with those that have entered as soon as further information is available.
Thank you for your understanding,
