Forfeit Bond

Forfeit bond

The forfeit bond must be maintained throughout all of the competition. The bond is used when a team forfeits and must be topped up the following week to remain in the competition.

Mid game forfeit

A forfeit where the game has been partially played and has been called off due to in-game circumstances will result in no competition points being awarded to the forfeiting team with the game counting as a win for the opposing team.

A team will not incur the -2 point penalty for this type of forfeit however the score at the time of the forfeit will be upheld.


Forfeit Process

To notify the competition manager of a forfeit you must do the following:

  1. Text your team name and competition night & division to  0434 741 627
  2. Notification must be received at least 2 hours before your game time to allow enough time to advise the opposition team.
  3. You will receive confirmation once received.
  4. Forfeits can also be advised through Teampay but we prefer a text message to guarantee a quick response.
  5. Forfeit fees are as follows;
  • More than twenty-four (24) hours’ notice of the forfeit is given to the competition manager — two (2) x the ordinary game fees.
  • Less than twenty four (24) hours notice of the forfeit is given to the competition manager — three (3) x game fees
  • Less than one (1) hours notice of the forfeit is given to the competition manager — four (4) x game fees

How Is The Ladder Determined?

Our senior ladders are on a points percentage basis (total points possible/current points).

Teams will earn 3 points per win, 2 points per draw and 1 point per loss,  0 points will be awarded for a forfeit with an additional – 2 point penalty for a forfeit where a game is not played.

Please be aware that a forfeit will still be displayed as a loss on the ladder
