Wednesday Night Division is Open. Players must be in Grade 8 to be eligible to play in the Mixed Competition. A player can only play in 1 team. Not playing by these conditions will be considered a forfeit for the teams.
Format for finals will consist of 3-4 teams for each pool. Those pools containing less than 4 teams will result in all teams eligible for finals.
For players to qualify for finals they must have played 4 games (this includes grading) for their nominated team. Please note, if YOUR team forfeits it will NOT count towards eligibility for finals. Rained out games will count towards eligibilty for finals.
Uniforms: All teams must be in uniform. Uniforms must consist of same coloured shirt with numbers and shorts of a similar colour. Shoes and socks (no metal tags)
NO WHITE UNIFROMS.
Team Cards: Please fill out team cards properly. Full names of registered players will already be present on game cards. Players are to sign next to their name every game to avoid any problems - these card are the ONLY record that someone has played. If a players name is not present they are NOT registered to your team. They will need to be registered online to be eligible to play for your team in finals.
Players must only play for the team they are registered to. If found to be playing more than one game, the offending team will forfeit the game.
Check your players’ eligibility on the website site by using the Draws & Results menu above to find your team. Click on your division and then your team. Team and player stats will show you how many games you have played. If you have any concerns please contact the Competition Director.
Draws: The Draw & Results tab above will show the schedule for the upcoming round. The draw will usually be available from Sunday night before the upcoming round only. The draw will be done weekly to cater for special teamrequests and referee availability. Therefore times for any round thereafter may not be correct.

Special Requests: To help co-ordinate the competition more effectively, we allow teams and referees the opportunity to request game changes, timeslots or forfeits. TEAM CAPTAINS can make these requests by using the Special Requests Sheet on the club noticeboard or by contacting Karina Johnson via mobile, email or the BTA Facebook page.
All requests must be at least 1 week in advance and will be at the Competition Directors discretion.
Forfeits: All team forfeits must be AT LEAST 24hrs prior to your game. All forfeits received on Wednesdays will incur a points penalty for your team. Forfeits must be directed to the Competition Director ONLY! It is not appropriate to contact the other team yourself as there may be teams that can take your place, referees to consider and field changes that can be made. Please be considerate of your fellow competitors.
