·       Please note that the downloadable guidelines refer to 4-a-side. For that aspect we’ll be keeping to 6-a-side

.       Further to feedback regarding previous events we will adopt the point scoring convention of 2 points to be awarded each time a side is fully out, and 1 point at the end of a match for the team with most players still on the pitch. The central timer will not disclose the time as the matches draw to a close. This rule varies from that shown on the rules download.

Format Guidance

·       To be circulated shortly after entry deadline but likely to be an all-versus-all round-robin
