Team captains will discuss when the specific match will be played.

If a venue is not available for a scheduled week, the match can be rescheduled the following week so both teams will have to play two team matches on the rescheduled week.

If no agreement is made between the captains, the League Committee will decide the location and date of the match in question. In this situation, teams with less than 3 players may still play the match but the spot of the missing player will be defaulted. If both teams fail to send at least two players, a double default shall be issued.

Matches can be schedule ahead of the weekly schedule if both captains agree.

Substitutions:

After the first round, ABC vs XYZ, another player belonging to the same team may play instead of the player that played the previous round. The team captain will alert the opposing team captain of the substitution and change the name on the matchslip. The replaced player may not come back to play the match.
