9.      a) In the event of a team withdrawing/ being expelled from the League and not completing the season, all win/loss fixture results involving the team will be erased from the League Table.

b) Any players from the expelled team that may be involved in singles/doubles competitions will also automatically be withdrawn from those additional events. Any wins already achieved in these events by the eliminated player will remain. (This may be unfortunate for some, but these events cannot be re-drawn or re-played.)
