Process for the day:

  • Register at sign in table where a number will be written on players’ hand.
  • Please ensure you have been to the toilet and have a drink of water on hand.
  • Enter court area ready for warm up
  • Players will be formed into teams for games
  • We will attempt to grade players in their requested positions although sometimes this is not always possible
  • Some players may only play one game and others may be involved in several. This is not a reflection on their ability
  • Returning Rams players will be graded on the information from Grading day, as well as last year’s coaches reports and independent season grading reports.
  • We will have independent graders working across both courts.
  • We will attempt to accommodate requests from teams and players to play together where possible
  • Parents are to remain outside the court area to reduce the amount of noise and distractions so both players and graders can concentrate and get through the process without interruption. Parents are to remain on premises whilst players are being graded, if you have arranged car pooling with another parent please advise registrar at the sign on table
  • Please note the estimated finish time and return to collect your child by then.
  • All coaches and committee are volunteers so if you feel you can contribute to the club by coaching or managing a team or assisting the committee, please speak to someone at the sign in table.
