All players within each team must wear the same colour top, and the same colour bottom.

Compression shorts (for health or medical reasons) may be worn to the knee. The match ball will be supplied by Netfest, but teams must supply their own bibs.
Netfest is open for all ages over 18 years and is gender neutral. You can be a complete beginner or an experienced player, as all skill levels are welcome to compete.
For mixed teams, there must at all times be at least one, but no more than three male players on court. Male players shall play one in each third. This rule does not indicate that the male centre third player shall be the centre player; he may be WA or WD.
During the tournament style competition, there will also be live music and market stalls where you can browse and purchase some items and then sit and relax with heaps of entertainment and food and drink for sale.
