Matches should only be re-arranged due to poor weather conditions.

The Home team should provide appropriate post match refreshments. As most matches are played in the evening, teams are encouraged to provide `supper` (hot drinks, sandwiches, cake etc).

Eligibilty for players
* 9   Amended 1st Oct 2017
Teams may only field players who are fully paid up members of the club. For clubs fielding more than 1 team, you are CURRENTLY NOT required to nominate a minimum of 4 players to the higher team, where these players would then be tied to that team for the season. Other members of a lower team may play twice for a higher team before being tied to that team on the 3rd occasion. But once a lower team player has played twice for a higher team, that player would be tied to the higher team and may not drop back down to play in a lower team. Any team fielding players who are ineligible shall forfeit the match and any games, sets, or rubbers won by that player.

Rule subject to Change.

* 10   Amended Sept 2017
In the event of any dispute the league organiser`s decision is final.
