Re: The selection process for ITSF worlds..

It is unfortunate that it's difficult (not impossible, though) for one of our best players to qualify at the moment, but there's no way we should be moulding the system to make it easier for them as all this does is make it more difficult for the majority who actually contribute to keeping the scene...

Re: UK Championships Results

I think that if Oli and I had this conversation face-to-face, I would have started talking, he'd be slightly offended, I'd say "Oh, I didn't mean it like that", and we'd agree to disagree. Maybe I should have said that, had Boris not qualified for Senior Doubles, I wouldn't have made any suggestions...

Re: UK Championships Results

OK, let's make this simple: I am not saying Oli and Boris don't deserve their place. I am not saying Oli or Boris should forfeit their place. I am not saying the results would necessarily have been any different with a different format. I AM saying that I think the format should have been the same a...

Re: UK Championships Results

I'm sure there are a hundred more "options" and my statements are obviously massive over-simplifications. I should have said: "In my opinion, the only sensible option is for Boris to play SD and Rob to partner Oli in OD". Nobody is asking anyone to "step down"! I'm not suggesting we ignore the syste...

Re: UK Championships Results

Oli will obviously be going to the Worlds - he's the Women's coach. There are only 2 options: 1. Boris decides to play OD - Rob gets screwed over. 2. Boris decides to play SD - Everyone wins. It's up to you, Boris! On a separate note, for the last 2 years all UKC events have been best of 5 in both b...

Re: UK Championships Results

The only way you can qualify automatically for OD is by winning the World Championships the previous year.

Wouldn't it make sense for Boris to choose SD and Rob to play with Oli?!

Re: New Venues: Want to play Fireball?

One idea would be to have the balls available for a deposit payable at the bar - you don't bring them back, you lose your fiver. Edit: though obviously that doesn't work with a coin mech, hmm. It does work, doesn't it? You don't pay anything for your first game but you have to pay 50p to get the ba...
