(Update: 29 December 2020)
Time to start winding up for the new competition season scheduled to commence on 3rd February 2021.
Building on the email sent to Captains & Players on Sunday 20th December, a further reminder to please start confirming team makeup even though you are not required to lodge any form of a team entry at this stage.
Firm requesting of online lodgement of team entries will be forthcoming on or soon after 1st January, but by then there will not be a lot of time to complete the exercise.
As previously indicated the new system relies on a Club MWM Convenor at each club, irrespective of the number of teams being entered by a club, taking responsibility for entering teams and player names [critically important that first & second names be correctly ordered & spelt].
It is fairly obvious for most clubs who the MWM convenor will be but we will confirm with you by the 1st January unless you advise beforehand.
Please advise if you have any worries as this unfolds over the next week & a bit.
This is being sent to all on our email list as well as being avaliable to view here..
Please add to our competition exposure by doing your own circulation to ensure we/you retain all players on our "lists" as well as attract new participants. It is always very encouraging to attract new players and especially new teams.
If your club has "list" players that are not required or wish to relocate, please let us know as we are very confident in being able to offer opportunities to all players.
January Mini-Comp Social Season
This will go ahead for 3 weeks from 13th January.
Other than several teams from the December season indicating they may need some emergencies, we have had no advice that any team does not wish to continue please advise promptly if this is not the case.
A new fixture for the 3 weeks will be produced and distributed to participating captains in the next week.
Best wishes for 2021 and an uninterrupted year of enjoyable competition tennis.
Any questions about how the competition runs can be found in the Guidelines, issued July 2019.
