EFC RACQUETBALL LEAGUES
"CANCELLATIONS & FORFEIT RULES"
We request players wear "approved protective" eye wear at all times when playing racquetball.
Anyone that can not play a match at the time it is scheduled, for any reason, must contact their opponent
24 hours in advance and at that time make arrangements
for a make-up match within 2 weeks of the scheduled match. You must also contact the league
manager to inform him of the change and the arrangements made for the
make-up match at the same time. The player wishing to reschedule a match
is responsible to make sure both the scheduled player and league manager
are notified of their intentions to reschedule a match, otherwise a
forfeit as described below will be imposed. An email should be sent to the
scheduled player and a copy to the league manager with the agreed upon
When a player contacts his opponent to cancel and/or reschedule a match 24 hrs in advance, the player
have a "C" put in his score for that match and the other player will receive a
"33". If and when the match is actually played, both the "C" and the
"33" will be replaced by the actual scores of the played match. In the event the match is not
played by the end of the league the "C" and "33" will remain. If a player
fails to show up for a rescheduled match, then it should be considered a forfeit.
(Make-up matches should be played at a time
other than scheduled league times. On league nights, the make-up can only be
played on a league court with approval of the league manager and only if courts
are available and not being used by scheduled matches. If the make-up match runs
into a time slot of a scheduled match that is present, the make-up match will
have to stop play and wait for an available court.)
Keeping in line with tournament rules, if any player does not show up within
10 minutes of a scheduled match without
contacting the player and league manager in advance, the player that is present
on time will receive a score of 33 and the player
that isn't present will
have an "F" put in his score for that match designating a forfeit.
(Forfeits must be posted on the day of the scheduled match.)
A player that receives an "F" (forfeit) for not showing up and/or not contacting their
opponent & league manager to reschedule the match in a timely manner may
only play the match to remove the "F" if the opponent & league manager
agrees. The opponent that received 33 for the forfeit will retain his
original score of 33.
Players who have cancelled, forfeited &/or not played more than
20% of their scheduled matches, will not be included in the play-offs.
It is generally understood that for every rule there is an exception for
extenuating circumstances. Don't count on it!
It is unfortunate we donít have more courts available
for league play, especially when there are a lot of players in the league, but
some sacrifices must be endured which are out of our control. We are open to any
valid suggestions you may have to improve the leagues and other activities
