Another decision reversed by HDVBA
Updated: Aug 7, 2020
Nine HDVBA member clubs involved in the creation of the new Winter League submitted a proposed rule change to the HDVBA Management Committee on 19 June. This rule change would enable the Winter League teams to be allowed to play mixed-gender teams under the auspices of the HDVBA.
This was first considered by the Management Committee at a special meeting on 26 June and it was agreed to hold a Special General Meeting as soon as it is safe to do so to allow clubs to discuss and vote on this matter.
This was then revisited at the Management Committee meeting on 13 July and following the decision not to invite the Winter League to join the HDVBA it was decided on a vote of 6-5 to reverse their earlier decision and not permit the proposed rule change to be put before member clubs.
