Heavy overnight rain wiped out most of Saturday's Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division programme.
Of the nine scheduled fixtures, only Penzance against Tavistock was still on.
The early morning casualties included the top of the table clash between leaders Bodmin Town and second placed Plymouth Parkway. The Priory Park pitch, already damaged after the midweek Cornwall Senior Cup game against Launceston, was left waterlogged.
Club officials are now hoping for some dry weather in the next five days in order to work on the playing surface in preparation for next Saturday's FA Carlsberg Vase fourth round tie against Northern League side Ashington, from Northumberland.
Other premier division games off today: Camelford v Liverton; Cullompton v Liskeard; Ivybridge v Launceston; Saltash Utd v Newquay; St Austell v Elburton Villa; Torpoint v Falmouth; Witheridge v St Blazey.
The game between Penzance and Tavistock was declared on after a pitch inspection at Penlee Park.
In division one west, three games were rained off. They were: Callington v St Dennis; Penryn v Wadebridge; Vospers Oak Villa v Helston.
In the Jolly's Combination League, the only games off so far were Mullion v St Ives and Porthleven v Penryn, while the Culdrose v St Day game would be played at St Day.
