Notes from tonight’s meeting

Here are the cup games for the first round. Teams are reminded that if there is an 8-8 result after the normal match a tiebreaker must be played (one game or three games as agreed between the captains)

Home Away
Ark Angels Craufurd Crusaders
Desborough A Waggon & Horses
Bourne End Bird In Hand
New Inn Ark Raiders
Ivy Leaf B Belgian Arms
North Star Desborough B
Craufurd Buccaneers Ivy Leaf A

The seven winning teams plus the highest loser will go into the Team Trophy.

Six teams will go into the Richard Pither Challenge Cup and will play each other in the quarter-finals with all three winners and the higher loser proceeding to the semi-finals.

It was agreed that if both teams agree in advance a match can begin at 8pm rather than 8.30pm. This will be proposed as a constitution amendment at the next AGM.

There are currently 50 entries for the Singles competition with one team left to provider their numbers, so a few more could be fitted in whilst still remaining below 64. Let me know if you wish to make any additional entries.
