All our doubles nights operate a pegboard system, to ensure everyone gets a fair number of games.
Occasionally, our sessions are over-subscribed, so to ensure attendees get a decent number of games, we reserve the right to play games to 15 points rather than 21 and/or cap the number of players at a particular session.
All players are required to wear appropriate sports kit, including shoes with non-marking soles.
