Good news for all us ladies who struggle a bit to do 6 sets in the summer league, late teas and arriving home from away games at midnight, our Ladies Captain, Lou Nanda has been campaigning over the last few seasons with the league to change the format, and this will change for this summer, after the proposal went to a vote at the AGM. After they consulted with other leagues and clubs the proposal that was passed was as follows: -
The change is applicable to the ladies only so far. The men's is staying in the 18 set format with the option to agree the short 12 set format and when they play 12 sets the below system of all pairs playing each other will prevail. For ladies 12 sets will be the default play and 18 sets may be played if both captains agree. (very rare last year only 23% of matches played more or less than the 12 sets)
The format of the 12-set game has changed and it means that every couple will play each couple of the opposition.
