Local Call: Order in the Court


With team league season upon us, it’s a great time to remind captains and players that there is no more important rule than keeping the integrity of your lineup intact. Essentially this means you cannot record a default at the top or middle of the lineup. If your No. 1 player can’t make it to the match, be it from injury or other commitments, you must push everyone up a spot on the ladder. This means your No. 2 replaces your No. 1, your No. 3 replaces your No. 2 and so on. The default is then recorded at the bottom position of the score card if no substitutes are available. A team’s results should only be as good as those earned by the players who show up!
