A reminder:

It is important that when you have a home league match a keyholder of your team is there by 7 o'clock to open up and set up the table and surrounds.

It is also important that you do not leave the premises without ensuring another key holder is taking responsibility for closing.

If a match is likely to finish late then please use a second table when one becomes available.
