Welcome to GBJT fixtures - Season 2, 2019
GBJT fixtures is a team sport and all players must be available to play for the whole season. Here is some important information for Parents and Players about GBJT fixtures.
- All Players and Parents must read the Nomination Conditions
- Players will be placed in teams which are fixed for the whole season.
- All Team Draws and information will be sent by email and therefore the nominated email address must be suitable to receive regular information. Please advise us if this changes.
- The Contact phone number provided for the Team Draw must be suitable to receive communication on a weekly basis from team members. Please advise us if this changes.
- The Team Draw and Season information will be sent out by email during the week before the first match of the season.
- Each team will have a nominated Captain, who will ensure that there is a team ready to play each week.
- It is important that the team members have regular communication with each other, whether by phone, text or email, so that they will know who will be playing each week.
- One player in each team will be on bye each week, but may be asked to fill in for his/her own team or another team if needed.
- The Team Draw contains a suggested bye list to assist teams to decide which player has the weekly bye but each team can alter this to suit their needs.
- The parents of returning players to GBJT can assist in the running of GBJT by taking on the roles of Level Contact or Replacement Contact. The Level Contact checks with the Team Captains at the beginning of the season and before the Semi-finals and Finals to ensure that all is in order with the team, while the Replacement Contact has a list of players from outside GBJT and organises replacements for teams if the team cannot find a replacement player.
- All parents will be rostered onto their child's court once or twice per season to supervise play and ensure the afternoon runs smoothly. No special tennis experience is required for this role. It is important that parents note the date of their supervision duty and attend or find a replacement parent if they are unable to do so.
