• Finals procedures:
  • Tuesday & Wednesday nights will be centrally timed as it has been all year.
  • With injury time, with keeping it consistent no injury time will be played for Tuesday & Wednesday night as has been done all year, unless in exceptional circumstances. (Touch wood) *operations will intervene where necessary in this instance
  • Friday night will be individually timed at the courts as it has been all year.
  • Friday nights competition set up allows for injury time stoppages so therefore that will continue in the finals series.  (please see attached injury/illness or blood stoppage rule)
  • All teams are required to provide 1 scorer each, they must sit together for the entirety of the game (no swapping), both scorers must be able to see the scoresheet at all times.
  • Players DO NOT need to be written on or sign the scoresheets. The team sheet is the official record of players. So please notify managers.
  • Extra time: Please refer to CNA – Finals Series By-Laws (THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL TEAMS TO READ)
  • Team Sheets:
  • These have all been emailed out to all clubs. I am finalising Friday nights today, and will email out this afternoon.
  • All team sheets must be collected from control, signed and returned back to control.
  • PLEASE ONLY SIGN EACH WEEK AS IT HAPPENS, NOT ALL 3.
  • Any players arriving late MUST sign in at control before they take the court. No sheets will be allowed to be kept at the courts. So managers please stress to your players that they must be there on time.
  • Please refer to Finals BY-LAWS for rules regarding players playing up etc. Give me a call if you need clarification.
  • Any players who have been requested via email will be handwritten on the team sheets.
