Wet Weather And Postponements

posted Jul 28, 2017, 12:33 PM by Malcolm Fletcher
Given the heavy rain we have suffered on the last two Fridays, and the fact that some clubs might have had to call off games due to waterlogged greens, the League has issued the following reminder of the rules . . .

In the case of fixtures / games that do not take place or continue due to exceptionally inclement weather: .

Clubs must within seven days of the cancelled fixture, inform the Fixtures Secretary in writing, or E-mail, of the re-arranged date. This date must be within 28 days of the cancelled fixture. Any outstanding fixture MUST be played before the last fixture of the season without exception.

The Inclement Weather / Unfit Greens rule 15 reads:

If the start of a match is delayed because of inclement weather a decision to cancel the match shall not be made until 7.45pm, unless mutually agreed by both Captains. A decision by the groundsman of the home Club that a green is unfit to play before or at any stage of a match shall be final.
