This league promotes Social and Recreational dancing for couples of all ages.

In the 'competitive' bit, teams compete on a match-play basis. Each heat features couples from 2 of the clubs competing. All clubs are present at each round. Points are scored for each head-to-head on the following basis :-

Dance points win 3(6) points joker
draw 2(2) points points in you don't need to be perfect,
lose 1(0) point brackets you just try to beat the other couple!

 

Bonus points (junior and 1 point for each dancer in the team over 6
intermediate sections only) 1 point for each unique couple with a combined age under 30
1 point for each unique couple with a combined age over 75
1 point for each unique couple with a combined age over 100

The competition takes less than an hour, which usually leaves over 2 hours for social dancing.

Regional heats comprise the following sections :-
