We’ve had a couple of players join/re-join so not all promotions are as expected I’m afraid. I’ve had to temporarily increase box 5 to 6 players as well.
Michael Graham and Nicki Mingay have won the free courts after being picked from a list of players who played all their games last month. Please ask at the Olympiad reception for your vouchers.
Well done to Andy Smith who came top of box 1 last month.
I’ve recently updated the rules to better cover failure to turn up or accept a game. I’ve attached the full rules but here are the bits that have changed (basically, please remember to write W/O on the score sheet so I know what’s happened):
Failure of an opponent to turn up for an arranged match will result in the full 5 points being awarded to the attending player and zero to the non-attendee. Please write W/O in the score box next to the zero to claim a walk-over.
If a player cancels a game within 48 hours of an arranged match, they forfeit the game (5 – 0) unless another game can be arranged by the cancelling player.
If a player fails to accept an invitation to play after 3 reasonable court times have been offered, they forfeit the game and the 5 points are taken by the invitee. Please write W/O in the score box next to the zero to claim a walk-over.
