  • There should be an option of a 10 minute break after game four, to allow players in the last three matches some warm up time. Teams should agree this prior to match starting.

  • Team captains will be required to maintain the scores on the night, so that points and leg counts should be 100% accurate at the end of the League. At the end of each night both Captains will sign the score sheet making sure all details are accurate. Score sheets must be kept in good and readable condition.
