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.
