The League will be divided into divisions, with three, four, five or six players in each division.
If there are 5 players in your division then contact two players:-
If there are 4 players in your division then contact 1 or 2 players:-
If there are 6 players in your division then contact 1, 2 or 3 players:-
If there are 3 players in your division then contact 1 player:-
Each league session will last for one calendar month. During that time players are expected to play each other player once. Opponents should be contacted during the first two weeks of the month. Please use the above mentioned guide to make the necessary contacts. You can click on a player's name on the divisions page to see if they have set their preferences for suitable days and times for playing matches.
Matches are to be played as agreed by the two players. If you are not contacted by halfway through the month, then please make contact yourself. If you are not contacted, or replied to, within the specified time you may claim the match 3-0.
All match results are to be submitted using the Results Form.
Please do not enter results directly onto the League match sheets (normally pinned on notice board outside courts at beginning of month). At the end of each League period, promotion and demotion will be carried out as follows:
a) The top player in each Division will be promoted and the bottom one will be demoted, with the following provisos:
b) Failure to play at least two matches will be a sufficient reason for you to be dropped from the next League session. Dropped players could rejoin later.
If you did not originally indicate that you wanted to play in the league, please contact the admin so that you can be included in the next session.
If you wish to join the League without starting at the bottom why not attempt a flying challenge. Challenge, play and beat someone in any league position and you will be entered in the league as near as possible to the beaten player’s position. A maximum of 3 challenges are allowed. Use the Contact Form to inform the admin.
Courts are to be booked in the usual way. Membership of the League will not entitle a player to any concessions regarding bookings or cost of courts.
Matches are to be played over a 40-minute period or as agreed by both players before the start of the first game. Each match will be the best of five games, ie: the player to win three games will be the winner of the match. In the event of neither player winning the match in the specified time, points will be scored for completed games only. Possible final results are:
3-0 * 3-1 * 3-2 * 2-2 * 2-1 * 2-0 * 1-1 * 1-0
6-0 * 5-1 * 4-2 * 3-3 * 4-2 * 5-1 * 3-3 * 4-2
Should injury occur during a match, completed games won by the injured player will count, but the uninjured player will be the winner of the match. Thus if A is leading 2-0 and is then injured, the match result will be 3-2 to B.
Any player failing to turn out for an arranged league match will forfeit the match 3-0. A player who has tried repeatedly to arrange a game against an opponent and found this to be near impossible may record a 3-0 Walkover on a Results sheet.
It will be the responsibility of both players to arrange their match and to ensure that the result sheet is returned to me. All results must be received by the evening of the last day of the session. Late results will not be accepted.
Current S.R.A. rules apply. Any dispute relating to the rules or the interpretation of them must be settled by the players concerned.
A yellow dot ball must be used unless another one is agreed upon by both players.
The Leisure Centre Management reserves the right to alter any of the above General Details and Rules at any time without prior notice.
