12.  Involving changes to Rule 71, Each match team to consist of a minimum 9 players. The pairs to be made up of, in each pair, no more than one member who played in the single matches. Rule 72 should now be amended to “and then three pairs games to 15 up”. (Brom Recs)

13. Veterans matches to commence at 1300 hrs
 
14. Midweek and Friday leagues to adopt the same format as Veterans League, ie six singles games and three pairs games. Therefore allowing clubs with plenty of players to use 12, whilst assisting those with fewer players. Clubs could also consider forming more than one team !
