Message from Mark Hope, RDBA Chairman
OK, we are ready to start taking orders for your Britannic teams.
I have until the end of January to confirm or cancel Rugby School sports hall.
We are looking for teams of 4 players, men/ladies/mixed. We need names as soon as possible please.
The costs will be dependant upon the numbers of teams entered, but be aware that we have already paid out £XXX (loads) to Rugby School for the Horton Crescent facility, that’s 6 courts for 8 hours. If we get 10 teams, we are looking around £6 per person, £24 per team. This is with a large RDBA subsidy.
I would like to arrange a meeting to work through some of the detail, with reps from each club and certainly the league reps, Steve T, Rob F, Simon O.
Areas of interest, handicapping for ladies/mixed teams, and for possible unknown players to our league, Leamington/Coventry/QDJC/Harris/Warks College. how we manage the competition on the day and adjust handicaps if required. We need to make it a success for everyone so that we can do it again in 2017.
Before I call that meeting, I would like to see some commitment from clubs to get some names in.
The event will take place on Sunday 21st February between 10:00 and 18:00.
Any thoughts please.
Many Thanks and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to you ALL and indeed your CLUB MEMBERS.
