Postponement of WBTF Virtual Competitions

September 7, 2021

WBTF VIRTUAL COMPETITIONS POSTPONED TO 2022

The WBTF Board of Directors made the decision at their September 5th meeting to postpone the Virtual Competitions that were previously scheduled to begin this October until after the first of the new year.  

A poll was taken at the meeting before making the decision. Eighty Three percent of the Board was in favor of waiting until 2022 to air the online competitions.  The majority felt this would give more time for athletes to prepare.  Many still have not had access to lessons, training or practice facilities.  Some of our countries stated they plan to be holding regular competitions during the months of October and November and felt it would be better to wait. 

The entry application will be available starting in mid-October. Anyone who wishes to submit their entry form and video in advance may do so at that time. 

The Virtual competitions are not taking place in real time.  They are recorded so that it is possible to watch them at a time that is convenient.

The new dates for airing the future Virtual competitions in 2022 will be published in the near future.

Thank you,

Sandi Wiemers, President
