Just a quick update on trophies for the 2019/2020 season.
If there are any players that have won a trophy this season that DOES NOT wish to receive it then can you please let me know by e-mailing me at admin@worksoptabletennisleague.com  
Can I ask that players do so by Tuesday the 9th of June please.
If no e-mail is received then we will assume that players would like a trophy and one will be provided.

I trust this web update finds you all safe and well during these difficult times.
This year's AGM, which was cancelled due to the issues surrounding the Covid 19 outbreak will be conducted via e-mail.
With this in mind can I ask that if anyone has a proposal that they would like to put forward at the AGM then can you please do so via e-mail before the 16th of June.
After this time I will then send any proposed rule changes or proposals out via e-mail for players to vote upon.
Please note that you will have to have been registered with the Worksop league for the 2019-2020 season to be able to vote.
Part of the AGM each year has an open Question and Answer section where players can ask any question about any league matters that they want, if anyone would like to ask a question to the Committee then again please do so by the 16th of June.
The e-mail address to send to is admin@worksoptabletennisleague.com

Coronavirus Update
After the Governments advice earlier this evening that everyone should avoid social contact with others and stop non essential travel, it was decided at tonight's Committee meeting that the League season for 2019/2020 shall finish with immediate effect.
There will be no suspension of the fixtures until later in the year and all the teams positions in the league tables shall stand as they are and be recorded in the League's history as such.
The second Finals Night that is scheduled for the 24th of March will be postponed and re-arranged for later in the year possibly in early September when things get back to normal.
The same will apply to the Masters Finals Night.
Our Presentation Night that is scheduled for May is also postponed until further notice and depending on further developments, may not go ahead at all.
Our AGM which is scheduled for May is also postponed and again a new date will be set for it in due course.
The outstanding Cup Competitions such as The Mike Tunningley Handicap Shield and all three Divisional Trophy Competitions are cancelled and will be recorded as 'no winners' for this season.
In addition to the above, this season's Summer League has also been cancelled entirely.
The Committee members present tonight voted unanimously to take this course of action and I'm hoping that everyone understands the reasons why as things look like they are going to get much worse before they get any better.
In relation to the current league standings I think that no one can dispute that Worksop Miners Welfare would have won the Division One title, Clowne 'C' Division Two and Sparken Hill Falcons Division Three with the relevant relegation issues also pretty much done and dusted.
I will of course keep everyone up to date with any further league developments as and when they happen and can I add that regardless of any information in this news post, please follow the government advice on self isolation.
