One team who will certainly be glad to get back out playing in this strangest of years is Bonds Glen.
It has been a tough couple of seasons for the Bee Gees but with promotion and relegation gone by the wayside, club stalwart Johnny Haslett insisted their side would be embracing the T20 campaign.
"We've lost a few lads in the close season; Roy Robinson has hung up the boots while Ash Buchanan and Mattie Barr are moving on.
"On the plus side, Stephen Barr and Richard Barr are joining us while the likes of Raymond Curry and Ben Nixon have had another year under their belts. Those two are continuing to benefit from being involved with the Warriors Academy and we're looking forward to seeing them progress.
"It's a chance to blood a few young lads with some of the pressure off and of course T20 cricket can also be a bit of a leveller.
"To be honest there's a good buzz around the club. Not having to look over our shoulder is a bonus. The way the competition is set us is a great idea and whatever happens we're two games away from winning a cup.
"It's a great incentive for clubs like ourselves- a proper carrot for Championship sides to push for."
Bonds Glen travel to Killyclooney in their opening fixture on Saturday week before hosting Donemana in Round 2.
