That evolved to include Nelson as well and so it became a “Quad” series with a tournament in each location and a finals weekend in Wellington.
The goal of this competition is to grow the sport across the country.
This is an invitational series so NZAFF membership by clubs and players is NOT a prerequisite of entering teams in the Series. Non-club teams can enter and club teams and can include players who are not members. Teams should look to involve as many local players as possible and encourage non-affiliated players to participate.
The tournament weekends are on the following dates:
Nelson 31 July - 1Aug, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
Wellington 14 Aug - Saturday
Turangi 28 Aug - Saturday
Hawkes Bay 11 Sept - Saturday
Wgtn Finals 25/26 Sept - Saturday & Sunday TBC
Teams can enter one or all the events and there is provision for a draft if there are players wanting to participate but are not included in a team.
The indication from the hosting clubs is that there will be at least 5 teams in each leg of the competition.
More information can be found here.
Entries are now open (entry form here) and any team is welcome to enter.
Entries will close on Sunday 27th June.
