UKW7 committee member last night called an emergency meeting to discuss the issue that is effecting the world currently, Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The committee based on many factors, advice and guidance from other sports organisations, business and events organisers have taken the difficult decision to cancelled the 2019-20 Finals.

The finals where due to take place in Ebbw Vale on Saturday 21st March, but due to recent outbreaks in Britian, sporting bodies cancelling events and with recent outbreaks in Newport, South Wales; the league felt this was the appropriate action.

Currently appointed, UKW7 Referees Development Officer Alana Sergant stated:

“I personally believe that due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, the advice from UK Government and action taken by other National Governing Bodies of Sports it is in the best interest to postpone any events to reduce the potential risk and ensure the health safety and wellbeing of all involved within our sport.”
