Mid-Week Men's Competition Tennis
We have unfortunately neglected our 80+ year old players in 2020 & 2021 is this yet another example of elders abuse!! in that we have not honoured new members of the group with public presentation of certificates.
We have new members Ken Mitchell & Charles Cattermole in this group and there are several more, whose names have not been noted. Could all Captains find a moment to check on this subject and advise by email, if they have new qualifiers in their team. We will arrange public presentation of certificates at the next available opportunity.
Hopefully, some of you have used the plastic covered sheet.
There is concern that it is prone to smudging but we have not received any feedback. Anyone liking the idea & willing to experiment may like to try non water-based pen [they dry quicker on plastic] but then do not erase with damp [water] cloth. They do however erase with methylated spirits, but this complicates the process.
Any retired or 'budding' chemists with suggestions??
As previously indicated we do have paper score books available if you want one let us know if you require one.
A reminder to check these documents for errors & updates. If like some, you have cancelled your home landline, please advise if it is in either document.
When entering results if you find any error in player names please SMS or E-mail Neil Armstrong [details on Fixture & Captains/Sub-Committee Listing]. We like to have these precisely correct.
Should you discover after lodging match results that there was an error in the match results, please follow this procedure > Contact opposing Captain & agree on the correction, then jointly email Neil Armstrong to have correction made
It is recognised that with an absence of byes in all sections but one, there is a restriction on obtaining emergencies. Be aware of paragraphs A & E of Guidelines issued in January 2021 as part of avoiding being seen to have unfairly strengthened your team when using an emergency.

Any questions about how the competition runs can be found in the Guidelines, issued January 2022.
