Outstanding Matches
Matches will show as outstanding on the League Tables page when a result card hasn't been received within two weeks of the Monday of the scheduled match.  As at 14th Nov, there were a total of nine scheduled matches yet to be played, although four were from last week so will not yet be shown as outstanding.  Please make every effort to get these matches played as soon as possible.  Hopefully a number will be played in the FREE WEEK of w/c 22 November!
Handicap Cup News
Handicaps will be set in the new year prior to the Handicap Cup that is due to start in February.  The website shows a number of players with a current handicap of 99.  This is a default setting to allow the players to be added to the database and proper handicaps will be given prior to the start of the tournament in February.  The maximum handicap will be 18.
TTE Registration
All players should be registered with Table Tennis England.  Please ensure you are and that you have notified your captain of your number.
