JUNIOR COMPETITIONS GAME FEE PAYMENT :

In 2019, all junior competition fees will be collected as a per player payment of $150. 

 

There are 4 main reasons that we are transitioning to per player payments:

  • Allows school aged players to take full advantage of the ACTIVE KIDS REBATE

  • Game night staff can focus attention on supervising the courts, rather than collecting fees.

  • Team coaches/managers will not need to collect game fees each week.

  • If players in your team do not turn up for their game, other players are not left paying higher game fees to take the floor.

SUMMARY OF KEY COMPETITION BY-LAWS :

BYES

 

For teams that pay per player: if your team has a bye, you will automatically receive 3 competitions points, however, you will still get to play a game.  We will invite one team to play an extra game that night (at no extra cost) so that your team does not miss out on a game.

FORFEITS

 

With teams paying up front, we would expect there to be far fewer forfeits (see fill in players below), however if you cannot field a team, it is essential that you notify MBA as early as possible (not later than 12 noon on the day of the game). 

An un-notified forfeit (no show or called in after 12 midday on the day of the game) will result in a full game fee penalty fine.

In the case of a forfeit, we will attempt to organise a game for your team against another team from the same grade.  If your team receives a forfeit, and we cannot organise a game (as per byes above), your team’s players will receive a credit towards their next competition OR a cash refund to be shared evenly among team members who have paid their game fees in full.

FILL-IN PLAYERS

 

The rules for fill in players will not be affected by this rule, as long as all team members have paid their game fees for the competition.  Please note that fill in players must be a registered member (there is a new 14-day free membership for new players).

MBA will continue working to improve the quality of services we offer to our members.  If you have any questions or feedback regarding the changes detailed above, please do not hesitate to contact us on (02) 4934 3503.
