Director ASCB has been in discussions with Army HQ and it has been agreed that the Army Sport Control Board will suspend all representative sport from 5th November 2020.

The situation regarding the suspension of representative sport will be reviewed again in two weeks and we will provide further guidance as it is appropriate.

OSVs remain suspended, with none planned until the end of January 2021. We will review whether or not they should go ahead before the end of this year and notify the sports accordingly.

This suspension is in line with English national policy and although the devolved nations have different ‘restart’ dates, it has been decided that we all conform to the English Government’s 4 week lockdown November 5th -December 2nd 2020.

Whilst we know this is disappointing, it is important that we follow the policy and guidance and will restart sport as soon as it is safe and suitable to do so.


Unfortunately due to the latest government lockdown restrictions and the closure of gyms and leisure centres, the Taekwondo non contact training camp due to take place on 18th Nov 2020 has had to be postponed.
