Central Club, Batley
When scanning/photographing the results sheets, can you please try to use the "white" copy as the blue sheets are not coming through very clearly. If we can not make out the signatures/names on the sheets then the averages can not be allocated accordingly.
Please also be aware that if you are not scanning/photographing your results sheets or then bringing the hard copy to the next meeting after a match this will affect your attendance for knockouts purposes. You have to attend 40% of matches to avoid being disqualified from the knockouts!
ATTENTION DIVISION 4!!
The Walkers Arms B team have had to pull out of the league with immediate effect. The tables issued by email and uploaded on the website reflect all the results being removed accordingly. Please ensure you update your fixtures lists.
The next draws for the Ladies, Landlords, Mixed Doubles and Team knockouts have now been released by email and are also available in the relevant sections of the website. The emailed versions have all contact numbers on however if you need a number providing please get in touch. As usual the Team knockout is to be played on a set night and no contact is necessary.
Please also remind all of your players who are entered into knockouts that they are now required to be present at 40% of the league matches to be able to proceed in any of the knockouts (other than one member of each mixed doubles pairing). As we are now a few games in this is starting to be checked and we WILL be throwing people out of the knockouts who do not start to comply with this rule.
To reiterate, you do not need to play 40% as this is not always possible depending how many players a team has and who the Captain chooses to play however if you attend the match and do not play you will need to sign the back of the sheet in the presence of the opposing Captain and when the sheet is sent through ensure both sides are sent so we can see who is present. Any questions please contact the Knockout Secretary, Nathan Wilby on 07975 788380.

CONTACT DETAILS / EMAIL ADDRESSES
There are still several teams who have not provided contact email addresses, can I ask that you please do this ASAP so that results, emails and knockouts can be emailed. The preliminary rounds of the knockouts HAVE NOW BEEN ISSUED. Can you please send an email to email@example.com confirming the 2 email addresses to be used for contacting your team along with the team name and main contact number for the fixtures list.
I have had a few responses with Venue information and these have been updated in the relevant section of the website, can I ask that all venues provide me with postal address including post code and a contact number for the venue itself in case teams have difficulty finding their away fixtures.
Also in the league information section I have put the proposed knockout format and the hotshots rules and score sheet.
If you can think of anything else you think would be handy to have on the website, please let me know.
Hope you all enjoyed the presentation night and congratulations to all winners of trophies and of course the raffle. A list of all the winning raffle tickets is here: Raffle Winners
