The Constitution has now been updated with the changes adopted at the 2016 AGM
This season there are 16 teams and thus no need to hold any cup competition qualifying rounds to eliminate teams down to 16. There will be one preliminary round where the top eight teams go into the Team Trophy and the remaining eight go into the Richard Pither Challenge Cup.
If there are tied teams around the midpoint a card draw will be performed at the next league meeting to decide which of the tied teams go into which competition.
If a preliminary round match produces a 8-8 result a tiebreaker must be played to produce a win. As usual this may be played as one game or three parallel games at the discretion of the team captains involved
