SAPA Rules

There will be a maximum cap on team entries for SAPA, stated when entries open for each event. Upon reaching the cap, entries will close and no further entries will be accepted.

SAPA runs across the weekend (Saturday and Sunday), but may need to play on the Friday afternoon, if required.

SAPA players must be available to play on Friday afternoons and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Before entering, players must check what division they are eligible for in the ‘

23/24 Uni & SAPA Player Ability & Divisions Rules
