Club Sessions

6.        Play during Club sessions:-

               a)  Doubles must be played and not singles if other members are waiting to play.                         

               b)  A short set should be played.  That is, play will terminate when the first side reaches 4 games.

               c)  At the end of each short set players must make way for those who are waiting.  If less than four players are 
                     waiting then sufficient of the players who have finished must leave the court to allow all waiting players
                     to join in.
