ATTENTION ALL TEAMS
Any teams who continually fail to attend games will face action from the Committee and I refer you all to Rule 27 of the BDPL League Rules which states:
27 Teams not turning up for matches will forfeit all points.
The offended team will receive average points (min of 5) plus bonus points.
The offending team will be fined ten pounds which will be payable within fourteen days to the league
In the past we have not enforced this rule and the league have covered the £10 payments for food when requested. This rule will now be enforced, any team who fail to attend a match without giving reasonable notice and cancelling through the Committee as stated at the AGM will face this fine.
This fine will go on top of the league fees and therefore, as with the league fees, if it still owed by the AGM then subscription to the league for the new season will be refused.

A change to the playing format was made at the AGM and from this season we will be playing a format of 6 singles and 3 doubles with the middle doubles being Scotch Doubles. Match sheets are available at the fortnightly meetings if you have not already collected them.
If you are new to Scotch Doubles the basis is that each shot played is alternated i.e. if you pot a ball then your partner takes the following shot, if they also pot a ball then you will take the next shot.
You are allowed to confer with your partner at the start of a visit however once you approach the table all conferring must stop - this does not mean you can confer each time one of you approaches the table during one visit, just the first approach. There is no conferring allowed during the break visit to the table.
If you are unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the committee.
