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|
