NSWBA Substitution Form

An on-line form must be submitted for any proposed substitution in a multi-session event held at the NSWBA.
Except in cases of real emergency, the form must be submitted at least 5 days before the session.
Substitutions must be eligible and of equivalent standard.
There is a limit to the number of substitutions allowed. Refer Section 4.8 of the NSWBA Substitution Regulations.

  • In IMP or matchpoint scored events, the offending unit will receive the lower of their actual score and their average score for sessions not involving unapproved substitutes.

Full substitution regulations can be found in the NSWBA Substitution Regulations.
