We are now in the final week of the first half of the season and up to date records can be found on tabletennis365.com/northumbria Several matches have been rearranged but Dale Aitkenhead has no date for the following match: Premier Division – Riding Mill v N.E.C.A.
Dale must be informed of the new dates by the home teams.
These must be played before the start of the second half of the season and the home club must offer two dates to the away club, one of which must be accepted. If the matches are not played before the start of the second half of the season they will be award 10 – 0 to the away team.
As this will be the last update before the festive season I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
