World Tens Series Delayed By One Day To Avoid Hurricane

IslandStats.com
The World Tens Series, scheduled to start this Saturday, October 24th in Bermuda, will be pushed back by one day to avoid severe weather conditions.

Round One of the World Tens Series, the League, will now be played across Sunday, October 25th, and Monday, October 26th.

The change to the schedule is due to Tropical Storm Epsilon, an expected category one hurricane, likely to generate sustained winds in the region of 90mph across the latter part of this week. With this in mind, the organizers have taken the step to move the start date to ensure the safety of the players, coaches, staff, and spectators.

World Tens Series CEO, Jon Phelps said, “Everyone has done an incredible amount of work to get to this point in launching the Series, that we felt the most sensible and, correct decision, is not to take any chances with Mother Nature.

“Bermuda has welcomed us all here, and we cannot wait to get started, but safety and patience is the wisest course at this stage. We are looking forward to the storm passing Bermuda safely and kicking off on Sunday morning.”

All seven teams have been informed of this schedule change and appreciate the requirement to do so.
