As we progress into the 2022/23 season, for most divisions there will need to be a reduction of sections at the end of this 2021/22 season, to get back to a fair and workable post-sectional finals system. This will mean at the end of the coming 2021/22 season, promotion and relegation will look different to what it has in the past.
Conditions of play have been updated to reflect and incorporate the restructure.
The desired outcome is to move all Weekend divisions, from division 2 downwards, to 8 sections of 8 teams for the 2022/23 season, and all Midweek divisions to 8 sections of 8 teams.
Season 2021/22 Restructure
2021/22 Metro Pennant Review
A pennant format that is tailored for everyone, rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Removal of ‘double-headers’ for Division 2 and below.
A longer break over the Christmas period to enable clubs to maximise valuable commercial opportunities available during this peak time, and to cater to requests from Greenskeepers for a longer break.
Clear and easier to interpret Conditions of Play, with ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ for easy reference.
