Club Constitution

  1. It is the responsibility of all members to enforce the overriding policy principle of: ‘equal playing time, varied playing partners and opponents with a fluent mix of sexes and skill levels’
  1. Experienced members must not only pick other experienced players and vice-versa
  1. Players must participate when chosen
  1. If players wish to take an extended break from playing, their peg should be removed from the board and placed in the storage container. When wishing to participate again, their peg is returned to the board



  1. Each player has a peg with their name on it. Ladies pegs are coded yellow, men pegs coded silver or white
  1. Visitor players (new players) will be given a 'Visitor' peg until they become members
  1. On arrival,  retrieve your ‘name peg’ from the storage container and place on the slide rail in the `Waiting' area of the board, i.e. you should join the end of the queue of players waiting to play i.e. furthest right of the slide rail
  1. The first peg on the ‘’waiting to play’ slide rail lines up the next 6 pegs and MUST select peg 6. 2 further pegs are chosen from the 6 pegs (please see peg rotation diagram). This is repeated until all 4 courts are in use.
  1. With all 4 courts in use, a group of 4 players will be organised (as per point 4) and move their pegs into the ‘next to play’ area
  1. When a court is freed up, the first in line on the ‘next to play’ area removes the pegs of those coming of court and places them at the end i.e. furthest right on the waiting to play slide rail. The pegs in the ‘next to play’ area are then moved up to the freed court
  1. Continue as from point 4
  1. When the number of players reduces to 22, the pegboard system will be withdrawn and members will revert to the rotation system as detailed in rule 14 of the club constitution
  1. At the end of the evening remove your peg from the pegboard and place it in the storage container
  1. Should a member find they are consistently playing with the same player(s), please refer to the team leader/committee member who will consider how best to alternative player rotation. Under no circumstances should members move pegs to resolve the issue.
  1. At the discretion of the committee, these guidelines may be varied from time to time to improve rotation


Tips on how to play your part

Please do not deviate from these guidelines. It is important that you regularly view the pegboard so you know exactly where you are in the picking order. When it is your turn to pick a game, it’s your job, not only to advise and round up the other 3 players, but, just as importantly, to tell the next person in the ‘waiting to play’ area that they are next to choose.


To obtain the full benefit of the pegboard system, each evening requires a minimum of 23 members in attendance. Please do try and attend every week.
