Following feedback from players, volunteers, parents and officials there have been some slight adjustments to the competition programme for the new season.
The Team competition will be a pairs competition (2 v 2). This change means that the games in the pairs league will be 4 ends in length and you will only require a minimum of 2 players per team. Clubs can enter as many teams as they wish into the league.
The Pairs and Individual competition will run alongside each other from September 2018-May 2019 and on a Bi-monthly basis. Both competitions will finish with finals days in May 2019.
