SLAM's frequently asked questions
- How do I add team members/ join my mates team?
What is the minimum age?
The minimum age to play is 15 years and older.
Does the whole team need to register upon arrival on the day?
No. In fact it is better if one team member comes to the registration desk. This person does not necessarily need to be the team captain; any member of the team can do this.
Can I change my team name?
We are currently updating the site to allow teams to edit their profiles. Please check back again soon. In the mean time to change your team name please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your current team name and ‘Name change’ in the title.
How many people can play on my team?
To register for SLAM SOCIAL you must have a minimum of SIX and a maximum of EIGHT players on your team.
There is a maximum of SIX players allowed from each team on court at any time.
Teams are permitted to sub team members at any natural break during the game and at the referees discretion
What is the format of the competition?
Competition format is 3 teams in each pool (number of pools depends on number of teams).
In each pool, teams play the other 2 teams in a round robin to establish a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place (No teams can draw a game).
When teams are drawn on points, the team with better point difference (points scored minus points conceded) will have the higher status.
The entire competition is then broken up into three tiers and make up a Plate, Cup & Bowl competition. 1st placed teams play for the Cup, 2nd placed teams play for the Plate and 3rd placed teams play for the Bowl.
Once teams are broken into the Cup, Plate and Bowl tournament, a knock-out format follows with the winner progressing from each game.
How many games will I be playing?
You are guaranteed a minimum of three games; there are two round robin games, which determine what tier of the tournament your team will play in for the knockout competition.
Once the round robin games have been played, the knockout (sudden death) rounds begin, there is a natural progression of winners moving to the next level and those who don’t can enjoy a drink at the after party.
