Each club play session generally follows either the paddle system or round robin system.
After a match is finished, the winners place their paddles in the GOLD box, and losers place their paddles in the SILVER box. Paddles for the next game are pulled from each box in alternating groups of four. (This helps to to mix up play, so that you do not play with the same partner two games in a row). This is good for inclusive play, which our club promotes.
When you arrive at a venue for a round robin session, you will be assigned a random number. A sheet or white board specifies each game as a group of four random “numbers” (players), which helps ensure people play with and against different players throughout the session.
When attending a round robin session, please arrive no later than fifteen minutes before the session is scheduled to start. Latecomers may not be allowed to participate in the session.
A club ladder is also sometimes organized during the outdoor season.
