CCC-Cats to enter the 2013 Spring CBA '2-Players' Singles League on Thursday night
It's great that you will participate.
We are still awaiting for srikiran and Dannel to reply here.
We also have clementloo telling me that he is interested to participate too. He said he is not wishing to be committed to play every week though. I have told him to communicate with us in this thread.
Since we have at least 5 interested CCC participants, I have told Gary that CCC shall enter this league with a CCC team, named CCC-Cats.

CCC-Cats to enter the 2013 Spring CBA '2-Players' Singles League on Thursday night
Regarding the cost for us CCCers participating, players shall share the cost.
Players playing shall pay, while players missing matches won't need to pay.
Yes, it could be complicating, but I am sure we can work things out.
By the way, we could be having more CCCers wishing to join our CCC-Cats team later (as this thread gets to be known by more CCCers).

Registration fee with Badminton Victoria
However, we need to make a note of this :
Each CCC-Cats teammate needs to be registered with Badminton Victoria ($35.00) regardless of how matches we play.
If CCCers have already registered with Badminton Victoria, you don't need to pay for this registration fee again.
BTW, when you are registered with Badminton Victoria, you are also registered with our Badminton Australia and BWF.

Sorry Chris -- quoted wrong team fee for Doubles -- one quoted was for Doubles A/B who play one match more than Doubles C --- Doubles C fee is $440.00.

A match will consist of 6 sets being 1 men’s doubles, 1 women’s doubles and 4 mixed doubles.
A match will be won by the team winning the most sets.
If sets won are equal, the most games. If the sets and games won are equal , the most aces. If sets, games and aces are all equal the match will be a draw.
Order of matches
The preferred order of matches is :-
Singles, singles, doubles, singles, singles in the 2 player competition
men’s doubles, women’s doubles, mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed for the 4 player competition
but matches may be played in any order. (change the preferred order if a player missing).
In 4 player matches the mixed doubles pairings shall be
• first - the strongest mixed doubles pairing… ManA and LadyA
• second - the remaining pair, ManB and LadyB
• third - ManA and LadyB
• fourth – ManB and LadyA
The courts are booked from 8:00pm and matches should start as close as possible to this time. Should one team be indicated on the scoresheet as responsible for a start later than 8:15pm and there be any unfinished matches those unfinished matches will be awarded to the team not responsible for the late start.
In 4 player format
• If a match is unable to start by 8:30pm the team responsible shall forfeit one match…….if unable to start by 8:45pm a second match shall be forfeited…… and if not possible to start by 9:00pm the match shall be forfeited.
• If unable to start as both teams are missing players eg one team has all men present, other team all ladies – the team with players of the preferred order of play absent shall forfeit.
• Matches forfeited shall be Men’s doubles then Women’s Doubles unless agreed otherwise.
In 2 player format
The same time frame shall apply but the matches forfeited shall be the doubles match and one of the singles matches as the only reason for no play would be if a team had no player present.
Any match unfinished shall not be counted as a match won - completed games, and aces shall be included and may decide the winner of the match.
Casual team vacancies.
A team that has named additional players at the start of the season must fill casual vacancies from their list of players before obtaining emergency players.
Teams are to attempt to obtain players from any team scheduled on a bye for the round.
The match secretary must be consulted before using an emergency player for the first time. Once approved that player may be used again without match secretary consultation. The results of 2 matches are usually required to ascertain a player’s strength. The committee may regrade any player at any time – if that player is considered to be playing well below their grade.
The total number of players used in any one season shall not exceed:-
• Singles teams - 6 players
• Doubles teams - 6 men and 6 women.
A 3 point deduction in each and every singles game played and a 5 point deduction in each and every doubles game played will be the penalty imposed on the player whose inclusion causes these maximum numbers to be exceeded.
A player is allowed a once off maximum time of 3 minutes for treatment of an injury.
Any player injured during a match may be replaced by another player in any subsequent matches… provided the replacement player is eligible to play that grade (or lower) and they can play without any undue delay to the playing of the subsequent matches.
The score sheet shall indicate the nature and time of the injury as this may be required for an injury insurance claim
The score achieved by the injured player’s team shall stand with the opposition being awarded that game to 15(21) points and any additional games 15(21) to nil to ensure a result for the rubber.
A person is not permitted to play in two different teams on the same night.
Both team captains are requested to email the result to the match secretary within 72hours of the completion of each match.
Permanent team changes
If it becomes necessary to replace a team player permanently the match secretary will need to give approval of the change – it will only be given to ensure a minimum number of players are available (if you have 3 men/women at the start and one leaves that player cannot be replaced).
For purposes of finals eligibility the new player will be deemed to have played all the matches played by the replaced player.
A player will automatically qualify for the finals if he/she plays a minimum of one half the number of matches in a season (rounded down).
No player will be permitted to play in a finals match if they have not played a match in that grade during the season.
A player from a lower grade may be considered as a replacement. The committee may over-ride this rule if necessary for the lowest grade.
Permission to play a player not automatically qualified for the finals must be obtained at least 48 hours prior to the final being played.
Points on ladder
A team that wins a match will be awarded 2 premiership points.
If the match results in a draw each team will be awarded 1 premiership point
A Bye is recorded as a win
Percentage is calculated by dividing total aces won by total aces lost and multiplying by 100. This is accumulated week by week.
If no referee is appointed for the finals the match secretary shall be the referee.
The referee shall have sole responsibility in ensuring matches are completed in time on the available courts.
Refusal to abide with any referee directions may result in defaulting a game or games if matches do not finish as a result of this non compliance.
Teams not involved in finals are to umpire as directed by the match secretary – in most instances for the second week of the finals.

2013 Spring CBA Singles B/C League (on Thursday night) - A message from Gary-G
Gary-G sent me this message :
Get out your badminton gear .... dust it off..... make sure it all still fits (and you've replaced or repaired the shorts you split in the finals)... because 30 of the entered 37 teams hit the courts this week.
8 teams play Monday, Wednesday and Thursday... while only 6 play Tuesday...... better check the web-site to see if you are due to play.
I'll be down this week and we'll sort out a few things --- what I want is one person to give out shuttles each night.
We have purchased a few score-books at a cost of close to $32.00 each - it is intended that they be handed out and returned each match night......You may be able to purchase one but you must contact Gary first... as we want to ensure we have 4-6 available at all times. Those of you who play at Altona will recognize them as they are the same as they have.
Please ensure all members of your team are aware of this start.
