FORMAT

Again this season matches will be TIMED with one forced time out when teams change ends at the midway point of the game. Normal FIVB rules (inc. substitutions) are followed, except that players are allowed ONE foot on (but not over) the service line, it has to be touching the line, the 'shadow' does not count. When the time is up according to the big digital wall clock, finishing playing the point if a rally is in progress. If at the end of the game time the scores are level, then ONE more point will be played to decide the winner.

The exact schedules for the tournaments with be decided in the week before each tournament, depending on entries. If your team 'wins' overall on the Tournament day then 10 points are gained towards the overall league for the season. If you finish 2nd, then you gain 9pts and so on. Over the entire season the SIX best scores of each team will go towards the overall season series score. This will be the same in the Men's and Ladies leagues. 

TIMES

The halls are booked from 9.30am, and games will start with the first service at 10am, so you must arrive on time! The last matches will be finished by or at 5pm. If your team enters then you must be ready and prepared to play from 10am to 5pm.
