Definition of Family for membership/tournament nomination purposes

For as long as the Association has been in existence, the meaning of “Family” has been accepted as the following:

either a


Defacto couple

Same sex couple

plus their dependant children under the age of 18 years.

It does not include parent and a child where the child is over 18 years of age.

Recently some people have tried to change that definition to suit their own circumstances however the Committee has re-afirmed the past definition as the correct one.
