Everyone: Read our COVID-19 Safety Plan & Requirements (These will be updated before the start of the season as regulations are likely to change between now and then.)
Players: You can view as well as print your fixture, court locations and contact details of team captains from your Section page by clicking on your section button below.
Please note that as we have graded 8-team sections and not 10-team sections, the 'number' of your Section may be lower than you expected. This does not mean that you have been 'dropped' to a lower section. The teams with you in each section will give you an idea of the standard of the grade. See below for a further explanation of section numbers for an 8-team draw compared to a 10-team draw.
Whenever MEMRLTA has a season with an 8-team draw, it might appear as if your team has been dropped to a lower grade if you compare your 10-team draw section number with your 8-team draw section number.
When the MEMRLTA Committee grades teams for an upcoming season, we try to place all teams in order from the very strongest to the very weakest—one giant ladder. This giant ladder is then sectioned off into the different grades, with a few byes thrown in to make up numbers.
Last summer we had 93 teams graded into 10 10-team sections (with 7 byes). When we graded for the Summer 2020/21 season, we had 89 teams graded into 12 8-team sections (with 7 byes). That's slightly fewer teams but 2 more sections.
The illustation below shows the cut off points for creating different grades for an 10-team draw and a 8-team draw.
