Reserves

PENALTIES APPLY FOR INCORRECT USE OF RESERVES OR PLAYING OUT OF ORDER. IF YOU ARE UNCERTAIN ABOUT RESERVES OR RULES, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR PENNANT COMMITTEE CHAIRPERSON AS THEY ARE THERE TO HELP YOU!

Reserving allows:

Women’s A1 the lowest grade are able to use casual reserves from available social players etc without needing to be registered for a team. However, to use these players in the finals series they must have been registered and have played the mandatory 3 matches. This is encouraged as it has led to recruitment and retention of players in the competition in general.

For all other grades eligible reserves MUST: –

  • Have a rating lower than the player they are replacing (a buffer of 5 points leeway is allowed)
  • Play in matrix rating order within team they are reserving for. Note that players cannot play below their listed order number.
  • Should you have any questions, please contact your pennant committee chairperson!
  • Be registered to play. This includes both a team submission request and player registration form found here. Registrations can be submitted during the season but must be done before the player takes the court.
