We got off to a good start this evening. The games were played in a good spirit and we kept to time and were out of the sports centre by 6.20pm. It is important that games start on time, which we did this evening!
I have updated the fixture list with the score. Steve Jones is devising a new table in Excel and so this will be added soon.
As we only have 7 teams the two division system we have used in the past will not work so we have an exciting new format for the coming season (thanks to Steve Jones for organising this).
Each team plays the other twice in the season and on 3 occasions plays one game straight after another. Teams never play more than 2 weeks in a row.
No team should have to stay for the whole hour.
The referee will be from a team not playing that week.
Games will be 10 minutes with no halves.
On 24 November and 1 December we only need 3 fixtures.
On the last evening of the season (15 December) the top 3 teams in the table will pay each other.
The Northgate Sports Centre manager has pointed out that our booking is only until 6.20pm and the staff should be locking up the centre at 6.30pm. Players in later games must not use the showers. We have to be clear of the hall, balcony and showers by 6.20pm - this new format will enable this.
