2-Aug-16 Committee meeting - 7:30 @ WPRC - Minutes 1608
14-Jul-16 The long running saga of Blades v Crusaders has now been finalised. A very full committee of 8 peers considered a detailed adjudication using current performance percentages as early as April. Only clear wins were awarded to each team and this left the finishing position of the division on a knife edge.  The process of adjudication requires that the option to replay cannot be pursued by either team if they do not like the result of the adjudication. Accordingly the committee withheld the adjudication and firmly instructed the game to be rearranged. Despite the committee's best endeavours Crusaders resisted all attempts to persuade them to play the game. This was in fact in their own best interest but it was not appropriate for that information or the score to be released. Crusaders resigned from the league and the committee have reluctantly accepted that the match will never be played so the adjudicated result has now been adopted and published with the other league results.
The committee regrets the painful outcome but the options were very carefully considered, fair to all parties and the committee would still deal with these events in the same way. Members should appreciate that the committee has no reason to favour any one team or individual over any other. Some members devote a lot of their own personal time and effort in running the league and do not wish to be involved in such tedious disputes. The league rules have been extended and amplified as discussed at AGM to make the process clearer and avoid a similar situation occurring in future.

3-Nov-15 Committee meeting - 7:30 @ WPRC - Minutes 1511
29-Oct-15 Thankyou to most captains who are putting in a great effort to get cards in on time. But there are still some exceptions.
I spend a lot of time maintaining the website and updating results. We try to do this promptly to get results and reports into the newspaper. 
In the past It has been even more time consuming and frustrating, chasing missing scorecards when it sometimes takes several calls to get hold of somebody to discus a missing card and then I might get told another person has the card, so start again!
So we now have a new policy:
Home teams failing to return a result properly & on time will be highlighted in red on the fixtures list and the committee may consider sanctions for repeat failures.
28-Oct-15 Junior table tennis Coaching sessions will re-commence on Monday November 2nd 2015 at Lostock Youth centre, Works Lane, Lostock. The sessions run from 5.30 until 7pm and cost £5 per session
8-Oct-15 Thanks to all captains for a good response on scorecards - all in this week by Thursday noon even with 3 Wednesday matches!
6-Oct-15 Thanks to all captains for responding promptly to the request for fees. At the committee meeting tonight all fees were settled and no fines were needed.
2-Oct-15 2-Oct-2015
The deadline has passed & Cheques have been received for only 5 teams. All outstanding fees must be paid NOW - on or before Tuesday 6th October. Teams in default will be fined £10 per week.
All cheques must be hand delivered or posted to reach Bob Barton at 27 Carisbrook Drive, Winsford, CW7 1LN by the morning of 6th August 2015 so that he can report them to the committee meeting that evening, 7:30 at WPRC. Alternatively cheques may be delivered personally by the captain or a representative to the committee meeting.

Any teams not meeting this requirement will be in breach of the league's rules and will be fined £10 for every week (ending at 19:30 on Tuesdays) that their fees remain outstanding. Any such teams will also be docked 10 points per week. Docked points will be restored when the fees (& fine) are paid.

We were hoping that captains would now be familiar with the requirements for fees and take the responsibility for this without any need for committee involvement.
However in view of the lack of response and need to satisfy Table Tennis England (formerly TTE) requirements and deadlines we have again published our understanding of the fees due for each team, itemised per player. The MCTTL fee is standard at £5 per player inc juniors. However the TTE fee is based on information from team registration forms & subsequent changes, combined with the TTE database.
Captains must confirm with each player if the understanding we have listed for them is incorrect. Captains must then forward one cheque for their corrected total for the team to Bob Barton with a full written explanation of any variations.

If any variations are found please provide full details and evidence to avoid protracted email/telephone exchanges which are very time consuming.

27-Sep-15 Problems with scorecards
We're only in week 2 of the new season and some cards are already coming in late and with errors.
I really need the cards to be right coming in from captains otherwise it gives me too much extra work. 
I have to deal with cards coming in from 21 captains!
  1. Please make sure cards are returned by the HOME captain within 24hrs of the match, legible and correct.
  2. Please make sure cards are entered with the correct home team on the LEFT, and
  3. Please use the online scorecard to submit results.

The online scorecard is designed to be an easy process and minimise the typing required, it calculates the averages for each player and gives the captain opportunity to check and decide on any incorrect or illegible handwriting, which is easier for him because he was there at the match.
Because of the number of problems, incorrect cards will now be entered incorrectly on the website to penalise/signal the home captain to contact
john@mcttl.co.uk and ask for it to be corrected.

14-Nov-13 We are currently trying to establish two new teams
New players needed NOW! - If you are thinking of joining the league now is the time - new teams need more depth! The Current league comprising 19 teams is problematic after the split into the Super-leagues. Splitting into 3 gives us one division of 7 and two of six. The division of 7 has to be worked for a division of 8 by incorporating a free week for one team every week. That's not too bad but the two divisions of 6 have to be padded out with two free weeks and only have two games each week between the other 4 teams. In order to avoid this we are trying to establish two new teams. We have the bones of these teams but really need some additional players  to give more people for those teams to call on for inevitable absences. So if you are reading this and thinking of starting to play (or maybe return to playing again) of if any existing members have contacts that could be persuaded to join the league and these new teams please fill in a player form
here or contact John and pass on their details as soon as possible, even after the new Super-league season kicks off on December 2nd.

7-Nov-12 Note from Committee: The league rules have always required scorecards to be posted within 24hrs of each match by the home captain. If a card is lost in the post it is very difficult to replace. To avoid loss original scorecards should now be retained by the home captain so they can be re-sent again if required. The online scorecard should be used to return results within 24hrs of each match. Any delayed results spoil the picture on the league tables and obstruct efforts to get regular reports promptly to the Guardian. It is also unfair on teams that do make sure their results are promptly returned.
6-Nov-12 Committee meeting - 7:45 @ WPRC - Minutes 1211

6-Mar-12 Committee meeting - 7:45 @ WPRC - minutes 1203
20-Feb-12 A situation has recently arisen where a team declared they were unable to field any players at all for a fixture and asked for a postponement.
The current rules state:
23. All matches should be played as per fixture book. Matches cannot be postponed due to lack of team players.
To give a postponement to any team would give them an advantage over teams that have already sacrificed games because of lack of one or two players.
After much deliberation it has been decided that in such cases there are only two choices.
  1. The match may be played on a rearranged date without points counting ("as a friendly") or
  2. the match may be forfeited (and the other captain notified).

Either way the result will be recorded as 10-0 against the team unable to complete the fixture on the scheduled night.

The date of this event has been provisionally set for Sunday 08th January 2006 at Egerton Boys Club in Knutsford as usual.

Please make every effort to enter as many of your team / club members as possible.
7-Sep-05 Season Start

The provisional start date for the new season is now the 26th September 2005. The reason that this date is provisional is that the floor at Lostock club is being completely replaced and the builders finish date may slip.
