The league season operates in 2 halves, either side of the New Year break.  At the end of the first half, generally there are promotions of 3 up, 3 down, resulting in a good variation of opposition in each half.
Prizes are on offer for winners of each half, the main trophies being awarded to the second half winners at the annual dinner.
A strong feature of the results structure is the rounding up of ends played to reflect a 10 end match, eg if a match completes after 8 ends with 4 ends won by each team, the results will show 5 ends won to each team. Blank ends are also calculated into the mix. The formula has been developed to encourage games to “go the distance”, rather than to have an early finish if the game is one sided.
On the league tables, an infill with ??? showing in the “ends won” box indicates a postponed game, or a missing card, with a result outstanding.  It is the responsibility of the skips to resolve the issue, and submit the match scorecard.    
Should the scheduled fixture be unsuitable for any reason, matches can be rearranged by agreement between the teams and Greenacres, but must be played, and scores reported, within the playing season. Should a team default on a game, that team will be allocated zero points, zero ends and zero shots, and will generally be liable for the total cost of the ice sheet.  The opposition will be awarded a “walk over” result, which is 2 points, 6 ends and 6 shots.
The league structure varies each season, depending on the number of participants.  The format is decided at the Skip’s meeting in May, which determines the playing format and club representatives for the following season.  See the Club History for more information
