New to the Summer Series this year has been the introduction of a cumulative tournament ladder, awarding points to teams in each round to identify end of series champions in each division.

A stronger focus on club-based participation has further enhanced competition intensity.

The new format will formally be adopted in 2020-2021 after a successful trial this summer.
