In the league, points won in each tie are decided over three matches comprising two men’s open doubles fixtures and a men’s combined age 70-years-and-above. These points then determine a team’s position on the standing.
The total games difference will serve as the tie-breaker in the event two or more teams are locked on the same number of pints.
Most teams are required to play two ties in the weekly competition, hosted over five sessions and to be completed by Oct 5.
Three other teams in the competition, which comprises a total of nine entries, are Extreme VRC, AVF and Team CCB 13.
