Team information

Playing for Duffield in the Derby Area League summer matchesduffield ladies 4th team 003

Each team consists of 6 players (3 pairs) and each pair plays 3 sets,1 against each pair from the opposition. Each set is to 9 games with a tie-break at 8-8 if necessary. Match balls are provided by the club and then go on sale via James (coach).

There are normally 7 matches to be played by each team in a given season, and 3 or 4 of these will be played away at the opposing club. The remainder will be home matches. Car-pooling is organised by the captain of each team for the away matches.
 
All weekday matches start at 6.30pm promptly – games can be deducted for a late arrival. More information about match etiquette is available to download.

Ladies' team captain: Julie Corne

Men's team captain: James Grindell

If bad weather is likely to prevent play (or further play once the match has started) it is the decision of the team captains to rearrange.

Refreshments are organised by the captain of each team for home matches. For example, it is usual to provide a tea of cheese and/or pâté  salad, bread, cakes, fruit and tea and squash to drink. Match fees of £2.50 are payable for home AND away matches, collected by the team captain.

The main thing to remember is to have fun!
