Important Rule Changes For 2020 Tournament

The Polokwane Mayors Cup General Meeting took place on Wednesday, 29 January 2020.

During the meeting, Rule 11 came up for discussion. The rule pertains to the minimum number of floor members a team may field for a debate. After lengthy discussion, it was decided to reduce the minimum number of floor members to six.

The reduction will make it easier for teachers to find the necessary members for a Mayors Cup debate and give the floor members more time to raise points in their favour.
