Follow up

WPA Interclub Doubles

Excellent competition. Some discussion on whether you could allow the replacement of two players in a team rather than one. Meeting did not agree with this idea. Defaults have proved a problem this year. Suggested that clubs reduce the number of teams and have more reserves. Agreed to discuss this problem before the start of next year's competition. Set rain day for final at start of competition. Suggested that the rain day should be a week later with a back up being the 3rd Sunday in October. Drop the overall team trophy.
