The province committee agreed to cancel the season after deciding there was no way the season could be restarted.

Part of the reason was due to the lack of venue being available with the Inverness Ice Centre likely to be closed until April.

Province president Jim Brown released a statement which said: "The province committee met earlier this week, and reluctantly decided that given the national situation with Coronavirus, there is no realistic possibility that the league programme for the current season can be completed, and so it has been declared null and void.

"We want to put on record our thanks again to the ice rink board and staff for all the hard work undertaken to ensure there was good competitive curling at the end of last year.

"And although it’s unlikely, should there be curling ice again we will do all that we can to organise competitions to use it, prioritising our knock-outs and bonspiels."
