- 2018 Sydney Metropolitan Final Supplementary Regulations Updated 13 September, 2018
Players who have failed to qualify via a club qualifying event may form teams and enter the Metropolitan Final directly via the NSWBA. All members of such teams must have participated in a DQE or a club qualifying event and the entry must specify the club(s) at which the members played. Augmentation of such teams at the completion of the Metropolitan Final is not permitted – the team that enters is the team that qualifies to the National Final.
