Join the social league

Basic rules

We have a number of basic rules you need to follow when playing in the social sports league.

  • Only players from your registered team list can play - no ring ins!
  • All leagues other than Futsal must have at least one female on the court at all times.
  • Shoes must be worn – no shoes, no game.
  • Warm up before the game to reduce risk of injury.
  • Results tables are posted weekly at the Recreation Centre.
  • Draws cannot be changed to suit individual teams.

Fair play

Our fair play philosophy is:

  • honesty in contest
  • politeness between all participants (including full respect towards your supervisors)
  • an acceptance in good spirit of the results.

Draws and results

Draws and results will be available once the leagues begin.
