With a room packed full of people, the Draw for the Open Scramble 2510/11 took place last night. With most teams being represented by their coaches it was a sight to behold.
With only 14 teams taking part in this years competition there have been a few alterations to the format. The plan was to run with only three divisions but the coaches present threatened violence unless a much simpler approach be used! Bowing to public demand, the commissioners have decided to run with only two Divisions this season (North and South), each containing seven teams.
Each team will play the other in its division once and the final standings will determine who gets to take part in the Championship V and in the Slammer Shield. Only the top two teams will play each other to determine this seasons HDWSBBL League champions (there will be no semi-finals – you win your division or go home empty handed). Games will still take place every two weeks but due to an odd number in each division, one coach will have to sit out each week.
Now we have that out of the way, we proudly present the results of the draw for the Open Scramble 2510/11:
