The action takes place on Thursday evenings over a nine weeks period. Teams are invited particularly from social sides, e.g. firm teams and other groups. Squad consists of twelve players with seven-a-side matches. Ideally teams should consist of both men and ladies for this non-contact sport played on pitches that are approximately half the size of a standard rugby pitch. Girls scores are worth three points while the guys scores are worth just one point!
