Okay, the draw you’ve all been waiting for with bated breath is here….
We ended up with 36 entrants for the singles and 23 pairs for the doubles so there is a small preliminary round for each knockout.
The entrants drawn first are the ‘home’ team and have the honour of deciding the venue for the match, it is up to the ‘away’ entrant to contact their opponent to arrange the match.
All prelim matches must be completed by the end of February. In the singles, all last 32 matches and in the doubles all last 16 matches must be completed by the end of March. All these games will be best of 7 format, lagging for first break, alternate after. The victor is responsible for getting the score to a member of the committee (just post it on here).
The last 16 in the singles and the last 8 pairs in the doubles will compete at finals day.

So the AGM and registration for the forthcoming Winter league took place at the Reform Club on Wednesday evening.
We have a record 24 teams registered for the season. Divided into two league of 12.
The date for first fixture is Wednesday 25th October.
We have a couple of changes to the league format put forward and voted on at the AGM, they are:
BLIND PLAYER NAMING … From now on each teams captain will write down each player independently of each other unlike in the past where the home team captain was written first and the away team captaining choosing the opponent after witnessing who he/she will play.
LAGGING FOR BREAK… From now on at the start of each game, the players taking part will lag to decide who breaks (If you’re not sure what lagging is ask someone or Google it!). In the doubles, one of the doubles pair will lag for the pairing. The Refereeing will continue to be alternated with the away team reffing the first game.
Good Luck all…
Due to not fulfilling fixtures the Stonewell Tavern will be taking no further part in the season.
Results and player stats from their fixtures during the first half of the season will still stand. Results and player stats from games in the 2nd half of the season have been removed.
So if your stat has changed in an unexpected way, this will be why.
Obviously all their remaining fixtures will be a free week for the team concerned, so be aware of this.
Well done to winning teams on Wednesday night, we had 3 dramatic penalty shootout deciding games, unlucky to the losers!
All is not lost however, all losing teams have been put into the draw for the plate.
The draw for quarter finals of the cup is as follows..
(Home team drawn first)
Rogue Traders V The Pub
Melbourne A V Lancaster Uni A
Bowerham Reds V Reform A
Ring O’Bells V Bowerham Blues
