Thanks Robert and the rest of the team for organizing all the divisions.

To be honest, doing this again in the summer isn't that appealing knowing that in all likelihood a huge chunk of my matches will be rendered meaningless when people withdraw once they've decided they now can't win the league or, worse, just cant be bothered.

For me, and of course other players had similar experiences, two matches never happened because the player withdrew before I even played him, and then 3 other matches were voided - basically wasting my (valuable to me) time and money.

Any chance of a refund of table fees from the players who withdrew?

No, thought not... >:(

There is an answer to this. Fine them. One team down here withdrew from the league and it cost the captain £100 in fines for withdrawing. Yes that is £100! If they don’t pay then they don’t play, that would be for you to decide though.

Any player who withdrew without good reason (e.g. moving house, bereavement or serious illness) is banned from entering all NBSA singles competitions for a minimum of one year!

That is the only way to deal with players who serially think that entering a league is just about themselves is to stop them from entering in the first place.

The committee will be discussing all bans in the near future.
