Conditions made it impossible to start today's scheduled matchplay rounds and, after a review at 12 noon, play was abandoned and the championship format changed to stroke play.

Weather permitting, play will start at 8am and will be contested by the 32 competitors who had qualified for the matchplay stages.

They are led by Nicole Whitmore (Woburn) and Hayley Davis (Ferndown) and also include the Curtis Cup players, Kelly Tidy (Royal Birkdale) and Amy Boulden of Wales. Yorkshire champion Ellie Robinson (Wilton) and Megan Garland (The Oaks) represent the host county.

Championship manager Emma Lowe said: "It is very disappointing for everyone that the weather has been so disruptive this week, but we are hoping for a very good day's golf tomorrow."

So far, the field has managed to complete just 18 holes in two days of torrential rain.
