Emba Badminton Club – RULES OF PLAY

 

  1. It is the member’s present responsibility to ensure that all the nets are set up at the start of a session, and dismantled and put into the store room at the end of the session.
  2. Proper non-marking athletic footwear must be worn on the court areas at all time. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. No player wearing street shoes or wet court shoes will be permitted to enter the court areas. Players must change into their court shoes prior to entering the court areas.
  3. No food or drinks are permitted on the court areas.
  4. All members and visitors will follow proper court etiquette at all times. Members and visitors will conduct themselves in a manner that will not disturb other players, their matches, safety and enjoyment of the facility.
  5. There are no age restrictions for players, but there is a requirement of sufficient skill. This is determined by an assessment carried out by Don Griffin and Alexander Mandryk. Members are allocated a Green, Yellow or Red peg according to the results of assessment. Green – beginner level, Yellow – intermediate level, Red – advanced level. Visitors are given a blue peg and are advised by Club Coach, Don Griffin, their recommended “peg color”.
  6. For players choosing a game Green pegs are advised to choose from Green and Yellow, Yellow pegs – from any colour, Red pegs from Red and Yellow. Peg selection for a game is a recommended guideline rather than a strict rule.
  7. When the board has 8 or more players in a queue, the selecting player must choose from the first 8 players or wave the game to the next in line player. A player that is not ready to immediately go on court cannot be chosen for a game (i.e. not changed, engaged in other activity). Players who do not want to be picked, for whatever reason, should place their peg face down to the right of the peg board.
  8. If any member has a dispute of court allocation, the picking of games, or any other concern, it should be brought to the attention of a Committee Member at the time, whose decision will be final.
  9. Members (including juniors under 18 y.o.) and visitors have equal rights to use of courts at any time.

  11. When approached by any EBC Committee Member, regarding breaches of these rules or common sense, members and visitors shall comply immediately. EBC reserves the right to expel any member.
  12. EBC reserves the right to change, amend or modify the rules at any time without prior notice to the members.
