Match Practice Rules
1. Match Practice will take place every Monday throughout the main season on the end court only, leaving the remaining 3 courts for all attending members on Club Night Peg board.
2. Each team will have 1-2 hours of practice approximately every 5th week.
3. The match court should contain 6-8 players dependant on the team members available on the night. If the Match practice court is evidently short of players on the night for what ever reason, players from club night may be invited to join the match practice court, preferably fringe team members at discretion on the team captains.
If Court appears to be undermanned on the night and there is high attendance at club then Members of the committee may ask team captains to take players into their practice session.
Team Captains from each team are to notify team members when they have match practice.
Team Captains are also to ensure at least 6 people are playing/rotating on the court.
