Team Tennis Selection Rules

To promote fairness and an equal opportunity to all club members wanting to play competitive team tennis, the committee has agreed a set of criteria and conditions:


1.     Any selected player must be a fully paid-up member of the club, before they play in a competitive match

 

2.     Ribble 'A' and Fylde first team will get first selection of players from the club

 

3.     To ensure all club members get the opportunity to play team tennis, no club member can play more than 1 competitive match per week, in the same league (unless no-one else is available)

 

4.     Ribble ‘B’ team will be run as a team for ALL members, to encourage competitive tennis at an appropriate level

 

5.     All team captains will be responsible for collection of match fees and ensuring the chalet, courts and surrounding areas are tidy after every match

 

6.     All team captains are to abide by the rules regarding starred players and maximum number of games that each player is allowed to play, as set out by both the Fylde and Ribble League

 

7.     Games cannot be rearranged on a night when there is an existing fixture (be it Fylde or Ribble – home or away), unless it is agreed by both team captains

 

8.     Captains must notify all other team captains at the club, of any rearranged games (Fylde, Ribble, Cunningham Cup, Juniors and interclub competitions) to ensure the tennis courts are not double booked


9. Captains must book the courts for their team matches and also inform any members should existing bookings need to be cancelled (this is as a last resort)

 

Failure to comply with any of the above conditions, will be brought up for discussion at the next committee meeting.
