This year there will be no pre-registrations. Players names will be added as they play. The players in a team will be added to every time a different player plays throughout the whole season. It will be up to each Captain to keep their own records for their team.
League Rule 3 - This will not be adhered to this season, registrations will be accepted anytime during the season.
The idea is that all missing registrations will be picked up at the start of the 2022 season when the new season registrations sheets are given out at the January AGM (if we have one)
A new result sheet is available to download with the correct address of the match secretaries.
With the new temporary rules for playing players short.
A draw will take place before the main draw to select the players who are to play twice. The team which is short of players will place ALL their players score cards, even if a player has not arrived, face down for the opposing captain to select players to play twice to make up the correct number.
Gents and Ladies can draw out 3 players and Mixed and Vets can draw out 2 players.
In the mixed, the rule about playing two Ladies or two Gents could be difficult by drawing out. In the true spirit of the game, please try to adhere to the rules but if not possible then play whoever you can (following above).
The draw will then be done as normal.
These players who are playing twice, will then have to play in the first four games and play their second game in the last four. The game which is played second should be marked accordingly with (2) after their name on the result sheet.
ALL players should go into the pre-draw, if somebody is late and cannot play the first game then the game is forfeited.
Similarly, if somebody cannot play the second game then the game is forfeited.
Every time a team draws out, a penalty of 5 chalks per match will be deducted (home team) and 3 chalks (away team).
The penalty will be applied after the match is finished.
The opponent of a player who has already played may have 4 ends practice.
This will apply to all sections and all teams, with no limit to the number of times it can be used throughout the season.
Because many teams have dropped out this season, the divisions will need reorganising for 2022. Finishing positions in 2021 will be used to achieve this.
