Moorabbin take home THE Alicia Molik Cup
Congratulations to the
Bayside Moorabbin team - winners of the 2017 Alicia Molik
Cup. See more details on the Alicia
Molik Cup page.
Scheduled on 2-3 December
Please pass the following on to ALL your teams. Washouts are still
to be entered online as per normal after 12.00 noon Saturday.
As many team members will already be aware, a number of severe weather
warnings are currently in place across Victoria for this Friday,
Saturday and Sunday.
Following a review of the situation and given all available information,
we have decided to cancel all Bayside Regional
Tennis Association Matches this weekend 2-3 December, 2017.
This significant action is being taken for two reasons. Firstly,
the forecast for extremely heavy rainfalls will leave courts unplayable
and not suitable for tennis.
Additionally, we donít want our players to be encouraged to travel to
tennis when all the best advice is asking us not to be on the roads
unnecessarily during the very heavy rain, flash flooding, and electrical
We fully appreciate the significant inconvenience this will cause across
our competitions, particularly the Sunday morning Junior competitions
where many sections are already dealing with washouts from last Sunday,
however our players and officials safety must always take priority.
Saturday Junior grand finals will be completed on Saturday 9th December.
Sunday Junior finals will be completed as double headers (Semi &
Grand Finals) on Sunday 10th December (where applicable). Further
details of venues and times will follow early next week.
This is a severe weather event like few seen in this state, and we ask
that you all stay safe this weekend.

LADIES THURSDAY A1
Hopefully teams downloaded their individual fixture from TROLS before
the season commenced - this should be correct! As A1 started a week
before all other sections the current dates on the TROLS fixture page
are 1 week out. The Midweek fixture that Kerry emailed out before the
season commenced is correct. If you have any issues understanding this
change please phone Jillian Sanders on 9584 5260 or 0419 501 365.

ADVERSE WEATHER BY-LAW
The paragraph in
By-Law 12 regarding adverse weather was amended at a Special General
Meeting held on 17th October 2011. The amended wording is as follows:
"In the case of wet
days, the away team Captain may contact the home team Captain or
authorised representative of the home club, to determine if their courts
are playable that day. If both Captains agree to abandon play for the day,
the home team will advise the Association that the game was a washout and
points will be divided equally between both teams."
Under the previous wording,
both teams were required to attend at the venue, and play could not be
abandoned until 60 minutes after the stipulated starting time.
The amended by-law is
effective immediately. Note that the visiting team should not contact the
home team until 1 (one) hour before the starting time of the match.
