The competition is mixed with no minimum on the number of male/female players per team.  It follows an 11-a-side format and guarantees every team nine games over 10 weeks.  

You may register as a team, a group of players or individually.  Registrants must be 17 years or older but do not need to be a UQ student.  Fees are $215 per player, per semester.  The minimum number of players per team is 14, with a maximum of 18.
