This is week 15 of 17 and the last week of the regular season games.
Finals and playoffs start next week but at PPT all teams play through until the end of the season (subject to byes). So if you don’t make finals your team will still play friendly games right up to the 20th of February. So this is not the last week!!
Some things that we need to mention as we begin the run home:
Return to 6 PM starts
As the days are getting shorter, this is reminder that the kickoff to the first slot has now returned to 6PM and all timeslots consequently move forward. In addition this week there is a fun run on around the zoo so I would suggest reminding your teammaates to leave early.
Grading and ladders
Ladders and draws running into the last week are here:
Weeks 16 & 17, finals and playoffs
Semi Finals begin week 16 and will be a top 4 format (1 v 4 and 2 v 3) Grand finals will be in week 17. There is no extra time in finals at PPT so in the event of draw the team higher on the ladder progresses.
Teams are reminded of our uniform policy in our faq:
Most teams are very good in this regard but for the benefit of our referees penalties for players out of uniform may be enforced.
Reminder flat shoes on fields 5 & 6
To reinforce the message I’m sending this reminder that, but we want only flat soled shoes on fields 5 & 6. So please pass this on to your teamsmates (if you have not already):
Finally hang around for a snag from our BBQ or get down to the Great Northern and have a drink in the beer garden. Every week the referees have beer vouchers available so whether you win or lose ask the referee on your field after the match and he should have one for your team. Social touch is what we are all about!
