With 18 clubs participating we took the decision to form three leagues of 6 clubs so this year half of the clubs will have 2 home and 3 away matches and the other half 3 home and 2 away matches but keeping the leagues the same for 2018 and reversing the fixtures will even things out
The winners of each league will qualify for the semi final draw along with the best runner up from the three leagues (based on points; in the event of a tie best holes up will be used to decide)
All matches in the league stages of the competition to be completed by Sunday the 4th September 2016.
The weekends of 9th/10th and 16th/17th September 2017 are the dates set for the semi finals to take place at a neutral venue.
The date for final is Saturday 23rd September 2017 at a location to be decided once the semi-finals have been played
All other rules of the competition remain unaltered. In the fixture list the left hand club is the host club.
