On the schedule you’ll notice that it indicates that there is to be a division switch prior to this week’s matches. At the captains meeting in September we discussed that this switch would be at the discretion of the executive and would be based on whether any teams were significantly higher or lower in the stats department compared to the rest of the teams in that division.
We’ve assessed the current stats and have decided to make just one change: That’s What She Set will move up to the B division (with Balls Deep dropping down to accommodate this move). All of the rest of the teams in the league will stay put and there will be no more moves for the rest of the year.
If any one is interested, our courts are available for an earlier warm up this week and next week (Nov 30 and Dec 7):
– Field #2: We can use the courts starting at 5:30pm
– Mark Tennant: We can use the courts starting at 6:00pm
Note that matches will still start at the usual 6:30pm.
The stats page has now been updated to show the 4 divisions.
You can now see the new 4 division schedule under the Schedule tab.
The scores/stats are now available under the 2016-17 Standings tab. You’ll need to click on the link that’s there.
To see the schedule for the first 8 weeks, look under the Schedule tab.
We’re working at getting the schedule posted onto the league website and facebook page as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.
At least we know that the lower division will be playing first, starting at 6:30PM tomorrow night (Wed, Sept 14th) and the upper division will start playing at 9:00PM.
The schedule has had to be adjusted a number of times since the captain’s meeting last week (for which Garret our scheduler has done a tremendous amount of work). Numerous additions and subtractions have been made to the number of teams enrolled in the league – at one point we were up to 39 teams, but have now settled out at 37 teams.
Captains, keep an eye on your emails tomorrow since I will send out an email to all captains letting you know when the schedule is posted.
If any teams are looking for more players, there are a few new posts in our “players looking for teams/teams looking for players” section of our website. Look under the “SUBSTITUTES” section.
Our 2016-2017 season will be starting in just a few weeks. League play will tentatively start on Wed, Sept 14, 2016. Details are still being worked out with regards to the pre-season captain’s meeting, fees, number of weeks, dates of the year end tournament…Stay tuned.
Last year we had 36 teams in our league. We can go up to a maximum of 40, so if anyone is interested in putting in a team, there’s still some room. All teams must have a captain attend the captains meeting on the teams behalf to ensure your spot in the league.
Fees will be based on number of teams enrolling.
Any questions, feel free to contact league president, Michael Newell at Michael.heather@Hotmail.com.
