Organising Your First Competition Match.
Steps as follows:
- You are the first named in a singles match or one of a pairs team which is first named. This means that you are the Home player or Home Team. This means you are responsible for arranging this match.
- Speak to your opponent(s), agree on a date for the match.
- Then check that a slot is available in the Rink Diary (the Rink Diary should be on one of the tables, ask a Greenranger if you are unable to find it). Remember that only 4 matches can be booked in a morning session and only one match can be booked in an afternoon session as long as there is not an RBC match taking place. Also check the Fixture List to confirm it is not a Mill BC day.
- If there is a free slot on your chosen day, enter the names of all players on the day you have agreed (Note that Rinks 1 and 6 are for coaching only). If it is a singles match you also need to arrange a Marker and enter their name in the slot as well (there is a list of Markers on the noticeboard however most members are able to be a Marker). Remember you cannot request a Greenranger to be a Marker for your match. Morning matches start at 11:00, afternoon matches start at 14:00.
- On the day of the match the Greenranger will draw the rinks to be used for all booked matches.
- Make sure you understand the format for your match. The rules are on the noticeboard and can also be found on the club website.
- Get a scorecard from the club cupboard and fill in the names and the competition you are playing.
- Enjoy your match.
- When your match is completed get both sides to sign the card and note the time when your match ended. Place the completed scorecard in the competition tin.
- Congratulations, you have successfully completed your first competition match.
