HOW DO I BECOME A RINGER?
If you can’t commit to playing regularly, are looking to play occasional games on another night of the week or don’t mind playing a second game at your venue, a great way to get notified of opportunities is to join our ringer database. To join our ringer database, log in to your account in the top right hand corner of our website. Click on my profile, then in the dropdown menu under the profile icon click ‘Communication Settings’. On the next screen make sure ‘Send me extra playing opportunities’ is selected and then select the venues and the days of the week you are interested in playing. You can tick ‘Via email’ and/or ‘Via SMS’ (note we are not aware of anyone who uses the SMS system, so your best chances of being contacted are via email).
Please note, players who play for higher grade teams at a venue, are not allowed to fill in for teams in a lower grade. So when responding to any ringer requests, please first check the team you are filling in for is not in a lower division.
A second way to pick up extra games is to join regions Facebook Group. Almost daily there are last minute requests from teams looking for extra players for their upcoming match.
