This initiative will be underlined by regular reminders about specific aspects of play. Click on this item to see the full list of reminders and one or two other SBU outputs
We should all be familiar with Law 74: Conduct and Etiquette. Let us each examine our conscience and ask: could we do more to help others enjoy our game? Remember - it is often not the words used that offend but the manner in which they are spoken.
