Updates - Spring Season 2017:
Matches 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.

Start Times for Matches
As you are aware, some clubs have different
start times. These are advised on the Junior Fixture that the BRTA
Secretary emailed out before the season commenced. The start times
are also noted on the fixture page of TROLS and in (brackets) next to
the team name on the ladders.
Some teams are arriving late and therefore need to forfeit sets to
complete matches before the following matches that have been scheduled
for a later time at the venue.
By-law 10d states - In the event of the non-appearance of a team, or one
or more members of a team, after 30 minutes of the appointed starting
time, the match shall be declared lost by the team in default, and the
defaulting team shall be fined unless good and sufficient cause to the
contrary be shown to the Executive. All remaining rubbers or sets must
be played for the awarding of points and percentage.
Therefore if a team only has 3 players they MUST play 3 singles sets and
1 doubles set. Hopefully the player that does not play singles
does play in the doubles. These scores MUST be entered when
entering scores sheets and a note in the comments area would be
appreciated to make sure the 4 points for the match go to the

sheets out they MUST include BOTH CHRISTIAN NAME and SURNAMES of all players.

If there is a washout, teams MUST still fill
out names (first name and surname) on the score sheet.
reminder also that our Junior teams are to supply refreshments for both teams
when playing at home. This is referred to in by-law 11 on your fixture.
