TGS 11a – please note you have a duty in the Blue gym after your game.
Semi Finals Format
1st plays 4th, 2nd plays 3rd.
Winning teams play off for the Gold medal the following week. Losing teams play off for Bronze.
There are 2 divisions that only have 3 teams – for those divisions, 1st will automatically go through to the gold medal match. 2nd will then play 3rd – the winner will go through to play for the gold medal. The losing team is then finished for the season. Men’s C Grade are playing both their matches this week and then having a breakup party!
For the remaining positions, 5th will play 6th, and 7th will play 8th this week. These teams will not play on the finals night – only medal matches will be played on that night.
There are a couple of teams that are in last place in a division with an odd number of teams, unfortunately they are now finished for the year.
ALL matches this week are time limited, best of 5 sets – which is the same as every week.
Mens A Grade & Women’s A Grade however will run for a maximum of 90 minutes. The first senior match will start at 6:40pm and the 2nd match will be scheduled to start at the regular time of 7:50pm. The 2nd match is scheduled to start earlier than the 90 minutes in case the first game finishes early. The latest time that the 2nd match may start is at 8:30pm and the very latest it can finish is at 10:10pm.
This format will be used for senior bronze medal matches during the following week – but A Grade Gold Medal matches will remain untimed. If you have any concerns about these changes, please don’t hesitate to contact me ( [email protected])
Please Note: players must have played 3 games to be eligible for finals. Playing ineligible players will result in a forfeit. During the regular season I am more willing to allow exceptions to avoid forfeits, this is not the case during finals. If you are not sure then you need to check with me before taking the court.
There are some players that haven’t paid yet – players who haven’t paid are also ineligible to play finals.
Good luck to everyone and please try to remember that we’re not playing for sheep stations. Abuse of referees or officials is not going to be tolerated.
