    vien is already planning his tanking strategy.... with the ultimate goal of getting a trophy. organisers perhaps should have an E grade, restricted entry to vien only, so he gets a trophy without even playing. his dream come true.

    It’s done … I have come to an agreement with Patrick … a fabulous guy, I dare say the best secretary MUBC ever had :)… my entry into all the events in C and B grade have been accepted :p

    Now one of two things will happen, either no one’s going to enter in C and B knowing the great South Australian Champions are in it
    Or
    There will be a flooding of entries in C and B, with angry people just bent on stopping us getting our hands on a trophy, and selfishly wanting the predigest title of “C Grade Champs” for themselves :mad:

    Let me help out the MUBC with this little promo …

    YOU GOT TO BE IN IT .. TO STOP ME !!! :D

    Just a little note for entering our tournament: if you are playing doubles or mixed doubles with an open grade player, you will have to play in at least B grade!

    Thanks a lot.

    MUBC Secretary.

    It is still not fair for an Open Grade girl to play against a C grade girl. :)
