Age groups for SL 2020-21

Hampshire and Derbyshire have asked me to add a fourth option to the list. I have used the proposal made by myself at the AGM last July as in essence it covers their recommendations. This option was either totally rejected at the AGM or received one vote. Click here to see the voting so far Following a request from Lancashire, I have added a chart below showing examples of dates of birth of players and their BE age category on different dates during 2020-22. Please bear in mind that for example an U16 player is eligible to play in U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 matches etc.   DOB of player Age group on Age group on Age group on Age group on Age group on Age group on Age group on Age group on Age group on 20/09/2020 15/11/2020 07/01/2021 11/03/2021 04/05/2021 16/07/2021 10/10/2021 19/12/2021 15/02/2022 02/03/2010 U11 U11 U12 U12 U12 U12 U12 U12 U13 17/08/2010 U11 U11 U12 U12 U12 U12 U12 U12 U13 13/01/2009 U12 U12 U13 U13 U13 U13 U13 U13 U14 28/09/2009 U12 U12 U13 U13 U13 U13 U13 U13 U14 18/02/2008 U13 U13 U14 U14 U14 U14 U14 U14 U15 23/11/2008 U13 U13 U14 U14 U14 U14 U14 U14 U15 20/04/2007 U14 U14 U15 U15 U15 U15 U15 U15 U16 24/12/2007 U14 U14 U15 U15 U15 U15 U15 U15 U16 30/01/2006 U15 U15 U16 U16 U16 U16 U16 U16 U17 02/06/2006 U15 U15 U16 U16 U16 U16 U16 U16 U17 11/05/2005 U16 U16 U17 U17 U17 U17 U17 U17 U18 09/09/2005 U16 U16 U17 U17 U17 U17 U17 U17 U18 07/02/2004 U17 U17...

Coronavirus update

With an ever changing situation, it is unclear for me to advise on our course of action but as it stands today I believe that:- ·         We should continue playing SL matches, including the play-offs and finals ·         We should not take part or spectate if we have any symptoms for which the government advice is to stay self-isolated ·         We should remind players to wash hands properly before and after every match, before eating any food or drink and after using the toilet etc. Likewise with spectators, team managers and coaches. ·         We should refrain from shaking hands at the end of the match, but use instead an agreed non-contact form of acknowledgement.   I think we might also consider ·         Reducing the number of spectators to a minimum ·         Asking spectators and players not to sit too close together (2m) apart ·         To use viewing galleries for the finals more often and when appropriate, to spread everyone out more ·         Not to share rackets, to bring your own food and drink, etc...
