It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing that Summer Social 2020 will have to be
cancelled. We have worked so hard to try and get something done this year but sadly
we have been unable to get the right approvals from the governing bodies in time to
deliver a quality, safe event.

We want to thank you all for your patience, we were so close, but ultimately due to the
current government guidelines the event would have needed to be compromised to a
point that we felt it simply would not be an enjoyable experience for our guests.
We would like to thank all of our key stakeholders – the Richmond Athletic Association,
our sponsors, Richmond council, London Society of Referees, England Netball, Holly &
Jamie who do an amazing job on the Throwdown each year and all the teams we have
been in comms with to discuss the various scenarios we have been working on.
We will be back on SATURDAY 5th JUNE 2021…. and all being well we promise it
will be an absolute belter!

All current ticket holders will be offered the choice to defer entry to next year’s event
which will secure you 2020 entry prices or apply for a refund. We hope that those who
can defer will do so, this helps so much with our planning.

We honestly cannot believe we are having to write this, it’s gutting, the 2020 event was
set to be our most successful yet, but throughout this whole process the emails and
calls of support we’ve received have reaffirmed that this community is full of really really
great people and that Summer Social is an event that people really do love, so thank

Looking ahead positively to the future.

Rob, Ed and all the team at Summer Social.
