Competition Rules
This is a 4-person team competition, Boys or Girls teams (no mixed) and there will be Junior and Senior Divisions. A Grading day will be run on the first day to assist with divisioning.

The competition will be a doubles only format and games will be timed or to 21 points, whichever comes first.

Please note that is a team turns up with only 2 players then the whole tie/all games are defaulted (we will let them play their games if they want to for practice).

If a team turns up with 3 players then 3 games are defaulted automatically.

Subs can be used every week but please ensure this is organised before the competition – subs must be the same sex and the same age bracket e.g. junior or senior player.  If subs are used in the finals they must have played at least twice during the competition.
