It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this note. Unfortunately due to circumstances outside of our control, the London 2020 Summer Festival is now postponed and will be moved to Summer 2021.
The health and safety of our community attending the event has always been the number one priority. Although we have built a robust Health and Safety and COVID-19 plan it has been increasingly difficult to satisfy all requirements to put an event like ours on given the dynamic and ever changing world we are operating in.
We have tried to give us as much time as possible to make this happen but now we owe it to all of you to make a call - and unfortunately it is not the one you, or we would like. Today was meant to be the day the first workouts were released, not an announcement like this.
We have spent the past few months planning, liaising and doing everything within our power to deliver this event and make it the best it can be. We know how much the community wanted functional fitness 'competition' to be back after a very tough 2020. We were buzzing from all the amazing stories and posts over the past few weeks from both regular and new teams and athletes training for the event - and could not wait to see you all on the Turf on the 19/20th. There were 1,050 athletes locked and loaded and ready to compete over the two days, with athletes from some of the best in the UK right down to Turf rookies lining up for a great weekend.
It disappoints us knowing we can't give you the platform you want and need to express all the hard work you have been putting in at the gym - and ultimately have fun with those close to you.
We are deeply sorry for an inconveniences this postponement may cause.
What options do you have?
All teams will be automatically rolled to Summer 2021. (Please do NOT reply to this email with your answer to the below, please send a new email). Please read the below instructions and then follow the 'What to do next' instructions -
- If you can, continue to support the Turf Games and roll your team over to Summer 2021. We will be in touch in due course with details around Summer 2021. This will guarantee your spot on the Turf for the biggest event of the year. Rolling over would be hugely appreciated.
- We would love teams to roll over to 2021. However, if you can't roll over, and definitely want a refund, the cut off to request a refund is Friday the 18th of September. Please allow up to 30 days for the monies to be back into your account.
All those teams that roll their entry over and ordered the tops, will be sent their Under Armour Turf Games London branded top in a few weeks. We will be in touch about getting them to you. Once these are sent we will not be able to process a refund.
What to do next?
One member per team ONLY, send us a new email to firstname.lastname@example.org with what you would like to do with your team entry, including -
- Subject line - 'Insert Your Team Name'- Summer 2020

Thank you to each and everyone of you for the support of the event to date. We are sorry we can not deliver on what we set out to achieve this time around. However, in true Turf Games style we will not sit idle. We will continue to adapt and work at creating amazing experiences for all those in our community - both physical and virtual and we have some great plans for the end of the year and also a BIG 2021 planned for the UK.
