Following from the LTA update on Monday 13th July, we can confirm that we now have the green light to play the outstanding matches from the Babolat 2019/20 Winter Leagues!
There are 54 “must play” matches to ensure we have final promotion and demotion positions. Another 21 do not impact on promotion/demotion but clubs/teams may want to play them anyway. However, if these “nice to play” matches are not completed there will be no deduction of points.
Please could all outstanding matches be completed by Sunday 30th August.
We will then aim to have the draft fixtures for the Winter 2020/21 season up on League Planner by Monday 7th September. Any changes that you need to make should be agreed with the opposition team’s Fixtures Secretary over the following week. Matches will start on 26/27 September.
