– Teams will be required to arrange their own shuttles (as directed by the STBA, which may change from time to time). The specific arrangements for this will be left to the discretion of your team captain – some teams may request a few dollars each week, while others may ask for $20 at the start of the roster. Please bring along some money in your first week just in case
– For junior players, ‘Ticket to Play’ can be used for this roster, please send an email to [email protected] with the relevant health care card details and the Ticket to play voucher code and we will facilitate the payment.

What night would I play?

–  We will endeavour to keep the same nights/division as we currently have (Division 1 – Wednesday Night, Division 2 – Thursday Night, Division 3 – Monday Night, and Division 4 – Tuesday Night).

Grading

– Grading Night is on Thursday the 15/09 from 7 pm for new players only, unless arranged prior. If you wish to discuss grading and growth opportunities, please let us know.

General Information

– All participants in the roster must be registered members of the STBA, there is a link from the home page that you can follow to register for membership, or you can pay on the first day of the roster. 
– If you know you will miss more than 3 weeks of play, please nominate as a fill-in only. Teams are balanced with players available and making changes mid-roster through frequent or permanent fill-ins will unbalance the teams. This may impact your ability to participate in future offerings.

FAQ

– What night will I play?
This will depend on the number of entries received as we have been actively moving away from grading players into divisions depending on what nights they prefer to play. We will try to have things matched up as close as possible, but will depend on entries across the two offerings.

– Can I withdraw my entry?
Yes! What we suggest is that players fill in the nomination form, in the notes section add in a comment about what day/s you can/can’t play, and NOT complete the payment section (so you don’t lose the money out of your account and we don’t have to refund you). As we get closer to the closing date, we will advise those who have entered and our members as to the likely days of play, at which stage you can decide to finalise your nomination or request to withdraw.
