Leisure Leagues FAQ's

General FAQ's

We've got a Points Match this week. What do we do?
A Points Match, is a space in the league, which usually occurs when we have taken a team out for disciplinary reasons. If you are scheduled to play one of these games, we will arrange a match for you. If you are due to play one of these games then you need to turn up, pay the match fee in full and you will be awarded a 5-0 victory. Please note that if you do not turn up to play the match you will lose 5-0, and be liable for double fees the following week.
What if we cannot fulfil a fixture because we are on vacation?
If you are going on holiday then please give us a call to let us know at least seven days in advance. This way you will avoid a charge, but you will still lose the game 5-0.
I have called or emailed and you haven't replied. What is my next step?
This is very discourteous, and furthermore we hope it never happens. We aim to respond to all telephone calls and emails within one working day. If, however, in the unlikely event you do not receive a response, you should email the main office and request to speak to a Senior Manager. The email address is [email protected]
What happens if our match is cancelled?
If you do not have a game when you are scheduled to on your fixtures then one of our managers will always let you know.
What if i have a complaint about my league?
We take complaints very seriously. If you email [email protected] then a Senior Manager at Leisure Leagues worldwide HQ will look at it for you.
If we don't have the full match fee, can we pay extra next week to make it up?
No, unfortunately not. To ensure the smooth running of the league, referees are instructed not to kick games off unless teams have the full match fee available.
Are The Full Rules Available?
Yes, they are right here
We Have Ladies In Our Team, Are They Allowed To Play?
That isn't a problem. Ladies and mixed teams are allowed in all our leagues worldwide.

League Facts

Is my league indoor or outdoor?
All of our leagues are 5 or 6 or 7-a-side and are played mainly outdoors on brand new all weather pitches. Some of them, though, are on high quality indoor pitches. This will be shown on the website.
How much does it cost to play in a league and is there an entry fee?
For most leagues there is an entry fee but for some we have offers of a reduced price or in some leagues, we will occasionally offer Free entry to teams. The cost of matches each week varies depending on the league, but is typically $30 - $55 for the whole team, which must be paid online or to the match officials
How long is each season?
Each team will play each other twice, so a typical eight team division will see the season last for 14 weeks.
Do teams get promoted and relegated?
Yes, two teams are promoted and relegated in multi team leagues. Please note, however, if the team has won/lost a division by a large margin, then Leisure Leagues reserves the right to promote or relegate that team is we see fit for the integrity of the league.
What if the team we are playing doesn't turn up?
This is extremely rare, but if it does, then the Match Official or Match Night Supervisor will organise a friendly for you. You will pay the match fee and you will win 5-0.
What happens if a team leaves the league?
This doesn't happen often, but on the rare occasion that it does, we will endeavour to replace them as quickly as we can. If we cannot do that, then a friendly will be arranged. Please note when you play a Points Match, you will need to pay the match fee to get a 5-0 victory.
We can't make our game. What happens?
If you give seven days notice, you will not be charged. If you do not, then you will be charged for the fixture you miss.
We need to leave the league, what do we need to do?
If you wish to vacate the competition, you are able to do so, but you need to give 14 days notice, otherwise you will be liable to pay for games in the notice period - plus any matches you may have missed.
Do we need to bring our own ball?
No, absolutely not. we supply all equipment. We use only the best balls at our league.
Do you supply the referee?
Yes, we supply a fully qualified official for all of our matches.
What type of footwear can be worn?
Each facility has different rules as to what footwear can be worn. This depends on the surface and their own rules. The most up to date information on this will be shown on the relevant league page.
Do we require matching shirts?
No, but we do ask that all teams wear matching colours. These can be our shirts or your own, or matching tshirts. If this isn't possible then the Referees will have bibs.
Are shin pads compulsory?
We do not insist on it, but we do advise it. We also remind you that all players play at their own risk
