Yeah, this is just trying to find something that works for everyone, like for you, that works and that's great. For me and a few others it wasn't working and we wanted to try something different.
Hence the all the vote and procedure. I am happy to change it back if people feel it isn't working obvs, but I wanted us to be weary of changing it too quickly/adhoc changing it every week. This is something I have really been struggling with recently and a bit of a different topic but:
I don't want to change the calendar too much too often, because for some of us we need a stable calendar to be able to come play: The days moving around all the time makes it hard for those who have other commitments outside of polo to commit to coming to polo, and ultimately those people will drop off coming altogether/sell their polo bike/take up a sport that has a predictable schedule like [literally any other sports group].
An example: The last few weeks southies have decided to play Saturdays instead of Sundays, which is great unless you're a person who has made a prior plan for Saturday, and you've also made people in your life move things to Saturday in order to protect your Sunday for polo, because when that Sunday doesn't happen because "everyone played yesterday", you feel like you turned down a lot of other potential things down (or made your fams life difficult mving things) for nothing. When this happens more than a few times, it makes you resent setting aside time for polo and you stop doing so, which obvs makes the cycle worse.
I personally think the adhoc organising of playing when certain players 'feel like' is harming long term uptake of play for newbs, but even senior players feel this impact. As stated above, this is a separate discussion I suppose. Maybe polo just isn't for people who don't have every evening and weekend free to pop down to Newington at the drop of a text message? IDK.
