Dinner Dance and Trophy Presentation 2013:
The Annual Dinner Dance and Trophy Presentation was again held at The Bridge, Walshford, on Friday 4 October. This year 93 tickets were sold, nearly 40% up on last year, with very good support from League and Tournament winners and 'regulars'.
Thanks to those clubs donating raffle prizes. Around £250 was raised and this helps to keep League subscriptions per team at a very low level for all member clubs. PICTURES IN THE GALLERY SECTION ABOVE.

- Division 6 will continue as last season with 13 teams
- Matches on courts at 'split' venues will have Format 2.1.1 throughout the season.
We are fortunate that Cardale Asset Management have agreed to continue their sponsorship for a 5th season. This will be their final contribution, and we appreciate the financial stability it has given the League.
The Committee is seeking further sponsorship from any local business for the period from 2014 onwards
The Fixture List specifies a standard format for each match:
- Format 2-2-1 – Two sets to 6 in the first 2 rounds, one set to 6 in the third round. This is the standard format for matches played on long evenings or where floodlights are available.
- Format 2-1-1 – Two sets to 6 in the first round, one set to 6 in the second and third rounds. This format to be used at the start and end of the season where floodlights are not available.
IT WAS AGREED AT THE 2013 AGM THAT ALL MATCHES
PLAYED AT COURTS SPLIT BETWEEN TWO VENUES WILL
FOLLOW THIS FORMAT.
The two team captains can agree to play a match to any format, but the format specified in the Fixture List will apply otherwise.
All matches start at 6.30pm, except at Wetherby B (5.00pm). Please be ready to start play at these times.
All matches must be played by August 31.
