B1 players must wear eyeshades. These will be inspected by the umpires before play starts.

B1 players will be allowed up to 3 bounces, B2 up to 3 bounces, B3 up to 2 bounces and B4/B5 one bounce.

Dress code: White tops must be worn by all players.

Catering: Please bring your own water bottle.  A packed lunch will be provided for players, umpires and volunteers.

Volunteers:  Please let us know of any volunteers/umpires who are free to help on the day.  Please ask family, friends and colleagues.  Without their support, this day will not run smoothly. 

Competition format: We are hoping to play a round-robin format for B1 and B2-B5’s events.  This will be determined by the number of entries and will be confirmed nearer the time.
