As with previous lockdowns, we understand the disappointment this causes our members, who again must put aside enjoyment of their sport to come together with the nation to protect each other and the NHS. We thank our members for continuing their support during this difficult time.

Rest assured that the CPSA will continue to work with the government, police, and fellow associations so we can return to enjoying our sport as soon as possible.

Most importantly, we encourage you to stay safe and follow the government’s guidance. We have been here before, and with the distribution of new coronavirus vaccines, the end of this crisis is in sight.

We thank all who are continuing to work to get the nation through the pandemic, including medical staff, emergency services personnel, key workers, and many other unsung heroes.
