IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ
Okay, I’ve decided to make a rule change.
I must admit that Covid has disrupted SSN more than I had expected it to. It caught me by surprise. If I had known it would be this bad, I would have done things differently. Too late for that now, but not too late to make this one change…
From now on (including this round just gone), if you have more than one player out in one section of the court, you can use bench players from other sections of the court to make up your team. It might sound confusing, but it’s not really. It basically just means that as long as you have 8 fit and healthy players in your 10, you won’t be penalised. It hopefully means that people won’t be too disadvantaged by all these Covid withdrawals.
If you read James’s post further up the page, that’s what he was asking about. At the time I said no, but the Covid situation has gotten even worse since, so I’ve changed that rule now.
