The following new rule was passed to help teams due to shortage of players during Holiday times.
Rule 4.3c It is expected that clubs will fill teams by drawing players from the teams below them. In the event of the LOWEST team of a club being unable to field a full team for a match, its captain may put face down four or more cards with the name of players who are prepared to play twice that evening. The opposing Team Captain will draw from these cards a player who is allowed to play twice. If more than one player is required, he/she may continue to draw from the remaining cards. The points that these players score will count towards their team total, but six points will be deducted from the total aggregate for that match for each player who has played twice.
Note 1. The person entering the match result on the website will select a player called Played Twice for the second game and enter the name of the player concerned in the box shown.
Note 2. The players who play twice must also have played at least 50% of their games for that team to date; this will be monitored by the Results Secretary and if they have not played the required number of games up to the date of the match the result will be declared a Walk Over for the opposing team.
Note 3. The individual player’s score from their second game will not count in their individual averages.
All other rule changes were passed with the exception of the proposal to increase match fees to 35 pence.
