2020.10.12 Cancellation announcement of the Karuizawa International 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Dear all,

We are very sorry to announce that unfortunately, the Karuizawa International Curling Championships 2020 has been cancelled as a precaution taken against the global outbreak of the COVID-19.

We had been preparing and considering for the event for a long time and so it saddens us to cancel it. However, our important priority is the safety and well-being of our curling families and the risk is too high if we were to continue to hold the event. Another reason is that travel restriction has still continued in Japan.

We will move towards the event 2021.

Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation.
Hope that everyone is in good health and spirits wherever you may be in the world.
