Summer Fixture 2020-21

The Summer Series Fixture for 2020-21 is now available for DIY download and print.  Due to Covid-19 and potential changes to dates and locations, printing has been held back for now.  You can print a full colour pdf for personal use, by clicking on the image below; please note this was updated on September 4, to correct two errors (Monday Series Coordinator phone number, and altered start location for Macedon Ranges Series event 4 at Kyneton).

You can also find event details via our online Coming Events pages.  We’ll upload event details to Eventor, and set up files to import to your device’s calendar, as soon as we have a date for restarting.  As of September 7, that restart date is October 26 onwards, subject to government restrictions (Step 3 of the Road Map).

Events are fixtured in metro Melbourne on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, for the duration of daylight savings (October to April).  We also have regional series in Geelong, Macedon Ranges, Surf Coast, and a new Mornington Peninsula Sunday morning series!

Our kickoff date of October 5 has been delayed until October 26 due to ongoing restrictions; however we’ll do our utmost to hold as many events as possible, starting as soon as Step 3 gets the go-ahead; at this point community sport is allowed to resume, with group sizes limited.  All events will be operated per the OV Return to Sport Plan.  Entry instructions and details of safety measures will be widely publicised ahead of time, as will arrangements for season passes.  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Geelong series will all resume the week of October 26.  The new Mornington Peninsula series will begin on Sunday November 8.  The Melbourne Thursday series and the Macedon Ranges series will start after November 23, while the Surf Coast Series will be held as usual during January 2021.

If dates and locations are changed, you can keep up to date via this website; the weekly O-News Bulletin, and through updates emailed to your club.

See you soon at Summer Series!
