Cost for Social Nights is $7 per player, paid by card.

1.5 metre distancing, regular hand washing and hand cleaning, no handshaking, no handing over of balls, no shared food. 

 EVERYONE WELCOME.


Problems getting players for round matches

If your team is struggling to get players for the regular matches (NOT SEMIS OR FINALS), please try the following, in the following order:

1. Phone all the Pool Players graded for your division or lower.

2. Ring the other captains in your division in case one of them has a player who is rostered off can play for you.

3. Borrow a player from another ETDTA competition, provided that person is of a similar playing standard. 

Each person can be borrowed a maximum of two times, so would have to be recorded as a Late Registration if used for a third time.

4. Get a friend to play as a One-Time-Player. (OTPs can now play once in each competition without having to become ETDTA members).

5. As a last resort - ring your Divisional Secretary or the Competition Secretary to see if they have a solution.

6.If you try all of this and you still cannot get a player, then play with just 3 players. The teams will then get to play 32 games on the night. You have to pay court hire if you forfeit, so you should play as many sets as you can and then you can play a few sets of social tennis to get your money's worth.
