You've seen the draft before, but it's now official.
So, if we assume that amateur players leaving their phones at home just isn't going to happen, how will the ECF, CAA, tournament organisers, league controllers, match captains etc. choose to interpret this?11.3 b.
During play, a player is forbidden to have a mobile phone and/or other electronic means of communication in the playing venue. If it is evident that a player brought such a device into the playing venue, he shall lose the game. The opponent shall win.
The rules of a competition may specify a different, less severe, penalty.
Is it stretching the wording, to announce "no penalty or no penalty if it remains switched off" as a different, less severe penalty?
Alternatively they just say that contrary to 11.3b, possession of such a device is allowed provided it remains off for the entire duration of the game.
