Matches are to be arranged by the secretary of the home club (first named club in each game). The home club must offer at least two dates, in separate weeks, one of which must be accepted. This is a handicapped competition, therefore setting is not allowed and each game is to 21 up and 2 sets only.
Clubs must mutually arrange the matches which must be played on or

agreed dates, and any subsequent changes to these dates.
