Extra week bye

Question:

With all the rain make ups lately I have an idea that might help. Is it possible for next season that you add in a “bye” week each half of the season, at least for those flights that have an even number of teams? That way the teams would have their normal day of play to schedule make ups. Also it would help relieve court available as well.

Answer:

We have thought about that. But it doesn't really work out as well as you might think. First, who would reserve courts? There would be no way to know in advance which home matches would get rained out and need the courts. And most clubs don't have enough extra courts to just set aside four courts for two bye weeks in case their teams need them. Second, we couldn't really require teams to use that day as a makeup. The problem is some teams will get rained out on a certain day but others may get to play. So then when a team gets rained out, their opponent may have already scheduled something on the bye day. It's complicated, but basically it's hard to make it work.
