First, I am not the team captain and my understanding of the situation is both second hand and limited, but here is the gist of it: Our mixed team, which I just recently joined, was supposed to have a makeup match today, after a match a couple weeks ago was rained out. The two captains agreed upon the makeup time (today at 5pm). After this, our captain found out that our normal home courts were not available at this time. He proceeded to book some other courts, which are actually closer to the other team, and informed the other captain. This other captain said she did not wish to play at these courts at this time. When asked for a reason, she declined to give one. After some back and forth, my captain decided that there was no reason to put in even more work, and said that we would be at those courts at 5pm. 5pm came and went, and the other team did not show up. My captain said he intends to put it in tennis link as a triple default. The unspoken subtext (at least according to me, but it seems pretty clear) is that these courts are in, or at least very near, *that* part of town. I don't know that this is the reason but its the only thing that really makes sense. The courts are actually on the campus of a public university. The courts themselves are in pristine condition, and afaik the campus is actually quite safe statistically speaking (the campus having it's own police presence), although admittedly the same can't be said for some areas of town not far from campus. So what say you? Was my captain unreasonable or warranted in his decisions? What about the opposing captain? Should the opposing team be defaulted for the whole match? Would you consider a purposeful default like this based on a refusal to enter a particular part of town?
