Hi Everybady entering the Xmas Tournament,
Thursday 28th December start time 2.45pm estmated finish time 7.30pm (ish)
I have at last sorted out the handicaps and playing schedule (I hope). As you know we are now 24 players not 16 and this has caused a great deal of problems in keeping the playing time to an afternoon and early evening.
However instead of 4 leagues of 4 and 12 minute games starting at 4pm as we did last year we are now 8 LEAGUES OF 3 (see attachment) with each game being 10 MINUTES and an EARLIER START TIME OF 2.45PM. Allowing an additional 5 MINUTES to get on court and warm up each league should take 45 MINUTES to complete there are 2 courts to use. The 8 winners will play a knock out quarter final then a semi-final and final.
Please try to help Paul Hardiman by not running over the warm up time as this will make the finish very late in the evening. If you can manage to stick to the schedule the tournament should be completed by 7.30pm.
