Frequently asked questions

How are the teams sorted and grouped?

Your Teams:

Six weeks prior to the tournament we will send you a form to complete where you can provide us with more information regarding your teams, such as year group, ability and frequency of play, this will then be used to create pools for the tournament.

Pools/Groups:

Pools are created based on year groups however,  to ensure the best possible exposure to more teams from multiple groups/teams, we can often mix adjacent age groups, but will consider frequency of play and playing levels when mixing age groups. If there are a large number of teams in one age group we may split these into two pools based on ability.

How does the tournament work?

The Tournament:

All teams will play 6 games in the rounds, then the top 4 teams will advance to the knock out stages and final.  Games times are 5 or 6 minutes each way with a minute half time and will ensure that there is always a minimum of a one game gap between games for every team.

Programmes:

A provisional tournament will be sent out a week prior to the event and a final version will be confirmed on arrival on centre.

What PGL activities will our team be doing?

During the course of the weekend we will be operating a selection of our classic multi-activities, so whilst not participating in the Tournament your teams will be able to access these activities on a queue and do basis.  This allows more flexibility and choice, simply choose the activity you wish to try and take your place in the queue.

Can I mix year groups within teams?

Yes – You may enter mixed teams only from adjacent year groups (ie. 7&8 or 8&9) however they will be entered and play in a pool based on the oldest year group. Maximum of two year groups per team is permitted.

When will our games be played?

Pool matches will be played on either Saturday AM or PM and the reminder for all teams are played on Sunday morning, All semi’s & finals will be played after lunch on Sunday.  Teams who have not progressed to this stage will partake in more PGL activities or can spectate the final stages.

How many schools will we play?

We endeavour to mix teams as much as possible to give maximum exposure to other schools, however if your school has multiple teams in the same age group it may mean that these teams will meet in the tournament.  We recommend that you seed these appropriately when completing the team info form.

When will the tournament finish?

Final are played and are generally finished by 3pm when the medal and ‘player meet and greet’ will take place. Once complete teams can depart or remain on centre to partake in more PGL activities. For those teams that do not make the finals, you are of course welcome to depart earlier on the Sunday, however we are not able to amend the tournament timings or meal times to permit an earlier departure.

Will all my teams play at the same time?

We plan the weekend schedule to ensure teams get the best experience and are matched within age range and ability, but also get good rest between games and time for PGL activities. Planning this for a large volume of groups means that we cannot guarantee all your teams will have the same schedule and therefore you may have some teams playing netball whist others are on PGL activities.

Will there be long wait times for popular activities?

At times there may be longer waits for more popular activities, however these are open for the duration of the weekend so all teams will get the opportunity to have their turn.  We kindly ask that before returning to an activity for a second go that you try all those that are on offer first to minimise queues and to allow all groups to visit their favourite activity at least once.

When do we need to check in/out of our rooms?

Arrival is on Friday, you are welcome to arrive earlier  but rooms will not be available until 5pm. Check out is on Sunday morning, however where possible we will allow rooms to be kept longer. If this is not possible you will be allocated shower rooms for your group.
