The official deadline for entries for this season's Annual Championships is Saturday the 14th of December but as the Championships are a week later than usual this year I am extending the deadline to Saturday the 21st of December.
If you wish to enter this season's championships by e-mail then you can e-mail admin@worksoptabletennisleague.com and list the competitions you wish to enter, the cost of each competition and your doubles partner if applicable.
Please also total the amount of your entry at the bottom - example below:
Open Singles - £2.00
Open Doubles (Partner John Smith) - £2.00
Handicap Singles - £2.00
Over 40's Singles - £2.00
Draw Doubles - £2.00
Total - £10.00
Can I also remind players that if you play in either Division Two or Division Three then entry into the Open Singles and Doubles is Free Of Charge.
You can pay for your entry electronically rather than send cash or cheques if they wish to do so.
If you do pay electronically can you please make sure that you state the players name as the payment reference.

Can I ask that if anyone that has entered the DTH Doubles next week but cannot now not make the competition, that they inform me as soon as possible as Mick Bell who is organising the event needs to do the draw and write up all of the scorecards etc.
Can people let me know before Saturday at 5.00pm by e-mailing me at admin@worksoptabletennisleague.com
Please remember that if you just don't turn up for the competition then you will be letting down your doubles partner as they won't be able to enter as the competition won't be redrawn on the night.

It has come to light that several teams are turning up after 7.00pm then expecting to and having a lengthy knock which is having the knock on effect of matches not getting underway until gone 7.30pm which is not acceptable.
Matches are supposed to commence at 7.00pm and 7.00pm is not the time for players to actually arrive at!
We are mindful that some players due to work committments etc. cannot make the 7.00pm start time but teams should have at least one player ready to start the match at 7.00pm.
If a player turns up late then he or she cannot expect to then have a 10 minute knock with one of their own team mates and should only have the allotted 2 minute knock with their opponent.
May I also take this opportunity to also remind players of Rule 8d in the handbook:
'All matches should commence no later than 7.00 p.m. unless other times be mutually agreed.  Any team not having at least one of its
members ready to commence play at the agreed time may forfeit the match and the points may be awarded to the opposition.
The remaining team members must arrive in time to play their games in the order of the scorecard unless prior arrangements have been mutually agreed by both teams'.

Please note that the date for this year's DTH Senior Doubles has been moved to Tuesday the 26th of November and that the Carnation Cup that was due to take place on that night has been moved to Wednesday the 27th of November.
Both competitions take place at Sparken Hill.
Can the players that have already entered the DTH Senior Doubles please e-mail me again to let me know that they still want to enter on the new date.
