ALL PLAYERS CAN PLAY UP FOR A MAXIMUM OF 2 GAMES FOR THE WHOLE SEASON. Once a player has played up three times, they will remain in that grade and team or if you have played for two different teams, the highest graded team. This ruling applies to ALL players from 10 years - Seniors. Net Set Go players are NOT able to play up into 10 years teams. Please ensure that you write the borrowed players details into the borrowed player section.
An ineligible player is one that is not entitled to play in the relevant grade or has not supplied the relevant information.
Any winning team playing with an ineligible player will lose 3 competition points to the other team. If the defeated team has an ineligible player, that team shall have 2 points deducted.
Players playing in the Over 35s comp must be over 35 years of age
14 and 15 year old Rep teams can borrow from any 14 or 15 years old Development Squad but players need to follow the playing up guidelines and have their home club confirm they can play that week.

7 year olds can play in a 7, 7/8 or 8 year old team, 8 year olds can play in a 7/8, 8, 8/9 or 9 team and 9 year olds can play in an 8, 8/9 or 9 year old team
