CONDITIONS OF ENTRY
Nomination fee Must be paid in full online.
Registered players A team may register 16 players for the tournament with a maximum of 14 participating in any single game.
Indemnity Form All players MUST complete and sign the team indemnity form before they participate in their first game. Players who have not signed this form are not permitted to take part on the day – it is the captain’s duty to ensure that all players have done this. I’ve attached a form for you to print in case you want to get a head start before Saturday to get this signed.
Under 18 Players Any players under the age of 18 must have a responsible adult to supervise then during the tournament. Contact the Event Coordinator prior to the tournament so arrangements can be made for the indemnity form to be signed by the player’s parent or guardian. Players will not be permitted to play without the signed indemnity form.
Social Mixed F.I.T. Rule 5.2 Mixed Gender Competition. In mixed competitions, the maximum number of males allowed on the field of play is three (3) and the minimum male requirement on the field of play is one (1) and the minimum female requirement on the field of play is one (1).
Tournament Rule A male player who is 60 or over in 2017 may count as a female player in the social mixed only. A team may count a maximum of 2 of these players towards the required 3 females. Such players must wear different coloured shorts to assist the referees.
