2009 Play-Off Format

Due to the fact that we have three divisions this year, the Play-Off format will be slightly different as follows;

The Grand Final will consist of the best two group winners (based upon their average points per match ratio).

The 3rd/4th Place Play-Off will involve the remaining group winner PLUS the best runner-up from the 3 groups (again based on the average points per match ratio).

The venue for the Play-Offs have yet to be determined but further details will follow during the course of the season.

Leagues Latest Piste

Thanks to funding received from both Suffolk Coastal District Council and Suffolk County Council, we now have a 2-lane piste constructed at Kingston Playing Field in Woodbridge. Built by the same contractor as the existing piste at Bealings, the new piste will have a new team playing on it in time for our forthcoming 2009 season.

It is available for use by anybody and there are both refreshment and toilet facilities located at the pavillion to the left hand side of the playing field.
