The team manager will also be required to carry out the scorekeeping for the game. Scorekeepers (there should always be one designated person per team standing together but social distancing) - please provide your own pen/pencil. We recommend only one person handles the score card, with the other person overseeing the scorekeeping.

Games may be shortened to maintain scheduled start times. The draw committee reserves the right the change the draw at short notice to ensure we are adhering to the governments COVID guidelines.

Team managers - please keep a contact tracing record of all players, team management, umpire, spectators for each game and ensure this is handed to your school delegate each week.
