Rain Out Policy
All Indoor leagues will run irrespective of weather. All official rain-out call’s will be made by 4:30pm on the day of the game. You will be notified by email, and your Captain will also have an update from our Captains Chat. Sometimes, in spite of our best intentions the weather can turn for the worse between the times we make the decision to play at 4:30 pm and the start of our league play at 6:00pm, so here is a timeline for weather calls leading up to your game time. ⛅⛈️🌤️🌥️🌦️🌧️🌨️🌩️
⌚4:30pm (or 2 hours prior to the first game on weekends)
We make a call dependant on current weather conditions, as well as court and field conditions and closures.
- No notification or email, means play on

- If fields are closed by our facility owners, we will postpone and reschedule
⌚6:00pm (or 20 mins prior to first game)
If rain starts in between the 4:30pm call and game start time, our staff will make a final assessment of the conditions when they arrive at the venue.

Rescheduling rained out games
- Rain out games will be rescheduled to run one week later, and the season end date will be pushed out as a result, to ensure you play all 10 games in your season.
- Some extreme circumstances like venues without lights, means some games cannot be replayed. These games will not be refunded.
- Sometimes this means we need to create double-header games to ensure we complete the season in a nominated time
