The format of the ETC has been changed since last year and the Championships will be played in two Divisions.
The Premier Division is for the top eight men’s and women’s teams and they will play for the main titles.
The Second Division will consist of the next 12 men’s and 8 women’s teams, who will play for positions 1-12 (9-20) and 1-8 (9-16) respectively.
For the next year’s Championships teams that finish 7th and 8th will be relegated to the Second Division and the winners and runners-up of the Second Division will be promoted to the Premier Division.
Men’s 11th & 12th and women’s 7th & 8th in Second Division are relegated to the Challenge Division.
