Clubs have been asked to declare their nominated players for each team prior to the start of the matches.

All matches (except for the Bacchus League) will be 1 hour plus 30 second increments except where no digital clocks are available or where a club must vacate the venue at a time which will not accommodate the potentially longer games created by the use of time increments. In these cases, matches can revert to 35 minutes in 75 minutes then a 15 minute guillotine finish.
