At this time there will not be a pre-season's captain meeting. We will hold a rules and regulations meeting at some point during the season to discuss potential rule and procedure changes. There will no longer be packets to be picked up prior to the season. All the information needed and score sheets are available on the MVDO web site. Each captain will receive an email with links to all needed information and score sheets for them to download and print out if needed. If you do not have access to a printer to print out score sheets or anything else you may need, contact web master Dave Madison or Chuck Solinski and they will make arrangements to get you what you need.

New Fall 2022 - Handicapped Divisions on Wednesday nights!


The MVDO will have handicapped divisions on Wednesday nights starting this Fall. Teams can consist of any combination of A, B and C players. It doesn't matter because matches will be handicapped based on the MVDO rating of who is playing in the match. All registered teams will be randomly placed in divisions of 4, 6 or 8 teams. The format will be Team game 1001, 2 sets of Spanish Doubles, 2 sets of 501 doubles, 2 sets of cricket doubles and 4 singles matches of best of 3 501. As normal, the visiting teams will write down their players each match and the home teams will decide who plays who. The players in the match will determine the amount of handicap given. In 01 games the lower player/team will start the game at a lower number. For instance in a singles 501 match between a 250 player and a 150 player the 150 player will start at 401 while the 250 player will start at the normal 501. In a doubles 501 if you have a 298 playing with a 120 their total is 418. If they are playing against two players that are a 198 and an 80 their total is 278. Thats a difference of 140 points in rating so the lower team would start 401 and the higher team at 501. The same concept in cricket with marks given to the lower team depending on the ratings difference. A chart showing the handicaps will be displayed on the web site and emailed to all the captains.

The handicapped divisions will have their own city playoffs and receive their own City Championship trophy if we have a good turnout of teams, i.e. more than one division of teams.
