2007 Open and Women's
Due to extraordinary and unforeseen
circumstances, the Management Committee of the ABF has invited a seventh
team to join the Open Playoff. The invited team being the Markey team,
as submitted during the tender process. It is anticipated that this team
will accept their invitation.
To assist with the efficacy of the movement and the validity of the
tournament, it has been decided to also increase the number of teams in
the women's playoff to seven. This is to be achieved by inviting the

If for any reason, a team withdraws from either event, or decides not
to accept their invitation to play, then only the affected field will be
reduced. That is, we will hold events with unequal numbers of teams. If
multiple teams withdraw from either event, the Management Committee of
the ABF will consider the situation and make a decision accordingly.
The ABF Tournament Committee is currently working on amending the
regulations and format of the events. As soon as they have determined
the detail of the events, they will be posted on the ABF website.
Please note, there is currently no consideration being given to
altering the advised format of the Seniors Playoff event.
