Pococks 2-a-side League Rules & Regulations

Format

Pococks ABV shall run 3 leagues namely, Men’s A1-League, Men’s A2-League & a Mixed B1-League

Each league shall be run in an 8-Team Double Round Robin format with the the top 4 teams from each league shall progress to Semi Finals, Bronze Medal Play-off & Finals

All Matches shall be best of 3 sets with the 1st & 2nd sets to 21 & 3rd to 15 (Teams must win by 2 points in each of the 3 sets)

A team’s final league round robin results shall be determined by the following:

  1. Match Points – A team is given 1 point if they arrive for their match & 1 point per set that is won (3rd set only counts if it is part of the match. If one team wins 2-0, the 3rd set may be played as a friendly but does not count towards the teams points)
  2. Wins – This is based on a team’s number of wins. (A team could have the same number of points as another team with less wins based on them winning sets in the matches they have lost)
  3. Sets Average (SAve) – This is calculated by subtracting the total number of sets lost by the team, from the total number of sets won by the team
  4. Points Average (PAve) – This is calculated by subtracting the total number of points lost by the team, from the total number of points won by the team
  5. Team’s Original League Seeding – If the teams seeded 1 & 2 are equal in all of the above criteria, the team seeded 1 shall be ranked higher.

Each match shall have 1 hour allocated to it and shall be run on Tuesday evenings at various times. The earliest matches shall start on the hour from 6pm. The last matches shall start at 10pm.

Officiating Duties

  • To make this league viable, each team MUST officiate 7 matches over a 14 week period. (If the team alternates between its players, each person shall be required to ref either 3 or 4 games over the 14 weeks, which works out at approximately 1 match per person, per month.)
  • Pococks ABV shall ensure that a team’s officiating duties shall be the match prior to their match or the match directly after their match.
  • Teams may make arrangements for alternative referees to fill in for them if they are unable to fulfil their duties.
  • Should a team fail to present a referee for their officiating duties, the team shall be penalised with a R60.00 fine AND a round of drinks for the two teams to be officiated.
  • A team shall not be allowed to participate unless all outstanding fines are settled.

Schedules

  • Once all 8 teams have registered and paid their season fees in full, the league shall start.
  • Pococks shall supply each team captain with a full seasons schedule with dates, times, opposition details and refereeing details.
  • Should a team NOT be able to make a specific match, it is up to that team to contact their opposition and to make an alternative time & date suitable to both teams. Once this is achieved, the team captain MUST notify Pococks ABV management of the arrangement.
  • The new match MUST be held at Pococks ABV.

Semi Final Team’s handicaps shall be reset to handicaps for Teams 1 to 4 based on their finishes.

Player Replacements

A team may use a replacement if one of their team members cannot make the match. Teams may only use a replacement that is from

  1. A lower ranked team
  2. A lower league than their league
  3. Must be a player currently registered with Pococks ABV.

Should a team use a replacement, they shall lose 3 points from their handicap for that match. This will give a clear advantage to their opposition.

Season Fees (excludes Semi- finals & Finals)

For NEW teams without a registered player at Pococks ABV

  • Registration Fee       R    180.00 registration
  • Match Fees               R    180.00 per team / per match

For teams with 1 or 2 players registered in a 4-a-side league team at Pococks ABV

  • Registration Fee       R    120.00 registration
  • Match Fees               R    120.00 per team / per match

The difference is R60.00 per match, which is the same fee that one player would pay if they played in one of our existing 4-a-side leagues. It makes sense for one of the players to join a 4-a-side league team so that they are able to make use of the discount offered. They could then use the savings to cover their 4-a-side league costs. We are able to make arrangements so that a player’s 2-a-side & 4-a-side league matches are not scheduled at the same time.

Registration Procedure

  1. Complete our 2-a-side league registration form, and return it to info@beachsports.co.za This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  2. We will then forward you an invoice for 50% of the league season fees.
  3. Registration will be complete once proof of payment that 50% of the season fees are received
  4. The balance shall be charged per match and must be paid before the team plays.

Prize Money & Prizes (For each League)

  • 1st –  R2,000.00 + Floating Trophy + Gold Medals + Product Prizes
  • 2nd – R1,000.00 + Silver Medals + Product Prizes
  • 3rd –     R500.00 + Bronze Medals + Product Prizes

As the league develops, we plan to increase the prize money through sponsorship but must start the league before we are able to market it.

Should a company sponsor a league in full as a result of a team’s referral; that team’s next 2-a-side league season fees shall be credited.
