I think I mentioned my ladies combo team defaulted one doubles line due to lateness this weekend. I've been questioned about how I handled it, so of course now I'm asking you all what you do. The player who failed to show was scheduled to play Court Two. When we learned 20 minutes before the match that she was going to be late, my co-captain called me and asked what to do. I told my co-captain to move herself to Court Two instead of Court Three. This left the player on Court Three without a partner. Court Three was defaulted, so the innocent player on Court Three didn't get a match. The reason I made these changes was to enhance our chances of winning the team match by winning Court One and Court Two. The match was played. Court One won easily. Court Two struggled and won by a whisker. Now the player who was forced to take the default on Court Three is angry. She doesn't see why she should have been forced to take the default and thinks she and the co-captain should have played Court Two. It's too late to do anything differently, and I'm not sure that I would. I tell my players when they join that I won't make them take more than one default in a season, but I've never spelled out what I'd do in the situation that was presented. Thoughts?
