For the 2016-2017 season of the Malmesbury and District Skittles League, there are 78 teams. Midway though last season, we saw one retirement from the League (Diamonds). Over the summer break, a new team has joined (Flying Monks).
The league format for 2016-2017 will be 14 teams in Division 1, 13 teams in Divisions 2-5, and 12 teams in Division 6.
This means all teams in Division 6 will have four bye weeks throughout the season, and teams in Division 2 - 5 will have two bye games.
