The Refereeing Team


Dear Fraternity Members, Players, and Parents,

I hope all of you are well.

You may be aware that despite all the Covid19 restrictions, STA continued to organise the tournaments under challenging circumstance for our playing community.

STA is also constantly looking for ways to improve our services for our participants through technology which obviously comes with costs.

With the current market situation and rising business costs related to goods, services, labour, and third party transaction fees, it has come to a point that STA cannot afford to continue to absorb these costs any longer. The last fee adjustment was in year 2000.

Whilst STA continue to make improvements to bring the best possible experience to all players, we seek your understanding for a fee adjustment with effect from 1 November 2021.

Revised fees effective November 2021 are as follows:

Players who withdraw from the tournament will incur an admin fee of $2.00 (inclusive of GST) and convenience fee of $3.21 (inclusive of GST)

We trust you will continue to enjoy yourselves playing in our tournaments and we thank you for your continued support.
