As per our weather policy we will be playing touchÂ tonight.
Unlike other competitions that cancel rounds (making the season shorter)Â we prefer (providing conditons are safe)Â toÂ leave the decision in the hands of our players. In the unlikely event a round is cancelled we will update the website and send a general email immediately toÂ all team contacts/captains.
The below outlines our wet weather policy.
At RPT we only cancel or postpone games if we consider conditions dangerous for our players. The twoÂ primary examples of this are:
- Â Lightning in the imminent area such that it may strike competitors. This will generally be judged on the night and if lightning is imminent games will be temporarily be halted until itÂ clears.
- Extreme heat,Â which we interpret as temperatures above 38 degrees
