Latest information:

Wed Aug 9th

I have been asked when the last games were played between Derby and Burton Vets

I have researched this and it was 1992, 26th May away, 14th July , home

Derby vice president  D Edmands complained that the Burton players were younger  than Derby Vets, and said he was no longer prepared to organise the fixture

In 1993 the A G M voted to dicontinue it (so it was our fault). There was a Challenge Cup for this, but i have no idea where it is, (probably in Burton) 

Tue Aug 8th

Home Leg at Rykneld     Derby Vets 145 Burton Vets 128

We have arranged an interleague match against Burton Vets League.The game will take place on Tuesday August 8th, playing both a home match and away match,at the same time 1.30, with the highest combined aggregate score to decide the winners. The match will be 4 single and 4 doubles.

It is hoped this could  become an annual fixture, as it used to be, in the past.

Would players/clubs please let me know if you would like to be considered for selection.

Some teams are already trying to re arrange fixtures due to player shortage. Rule 13 states that games should only be changed due to green conditions,or funerals.Clubs must try to play a fixture even when short of players.We have rules in place for this ,with 2 players allowed to play twice, if more than 2 short you forfeit a game. Clubs are not obliged to change a date, and can claim average points at the end of the season, with the offenders having no points.
