Smoke haze updatePosted on January 14, 2020
The 2020 AgBioEn Kooyong Classic is due to commence today at 1:00pm.
Tournament Director, Peter Johnston announced this morning that authorities are monitoring the conditions of the smoke hazed skies.
“The health and safety of the players, spectators and all involved in the Kooyong Classic event is paramount,” says Johnston.
At this stage, indications are that conditions will improve, and they will be monitored throughout the day.
Fortunately, a later start time of 1:00pm will work in favour of the Kooyong Classic this year, with conditions set to gradually clear.
Matches may be rescheduled to a later start time today, if so required.
Authorities are re-assessing the air quality and conditions for play hour by hour.
