For all fixtures ladders and results click here. See our current social sport timetable here. Week 1 fixtures will become available 48 hours prior to the competition commencement at the above location.

Teams should arrive at the venue 15 minutes prior to their game time.  Weekly fees need to be paid to the venues service desk prior to your game at which point you will pick up a receipt which you give to the umpire before your match can commence.  Please ensure your team is ready to play as soon as the game before you is completed as teams that are late will be penalised and will forfeit the game if they are more than 10 minutes late.

Bags should not be left around the edge of the court as it is dangerous for players.  Therefore bags should be left outside the hall or preferably not brought along at all. Do not bring along valuables - if you don't need it, don't bring it.  No food or drink is allowed in the hall. Any teams found to be leaving rubbish behind may be suspended from the competition.

Grading

Grading will take place in competitions where there are enough teams to be divided into 2 divisions.  In such competitions week 1 will be used for grading purposes where umpires, referees and competition management will determine seedings.  The online team registration form allows teams to select their preference for a higher or lower grade, however, the final decision on grading will be determined by competition management.

Awards

The number of teams to receive awards at the end of the season will be determined by the total number of entries.  In most competitions, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed teams will receive awards for up to 8 players. Additional awards can be purchased for teams with more than 8 players.
