What if my team may not have enough players?

At PPT we go the extra mile to ensure all teams are healthy and all games go ahead each week. But for for this to work it is the responsibility of teams to commit to the season and communicated and co-operate with the committee should issues occur. To this end is is essential that:

  • If at any point before or during the season your teams numbers are low, your captain should let us know as we can usually allocate additional permanent players

Players with in a team are expected to:

  1. Do their best to be available to play touch every week
  2. Advise their captain as soon as possible if they are unavailable.
  3. If the team is low on numbers the captain should advise the committee as soon as possible.

The committee will then

  1. Advise if it is possible to find additional players so that a match(es) can go ahead
  2. If it is possible your available team members should show up and additional players will be allocated
  3. If not possible we will let you know, you should then advise your team the game is off and we will advise the other team.

The key is to communicate often and early. Last minute emails or worse a no show are not acceptable. Teams that fail to comply will be removed from competition and banned from all future PPT events. As it unfair to other members.
