Grading

Each year, WABL Associations enter their teams into the WABL Grading Tournament for qualification into relevant WABL Pools. This is perhaps the most important process on the WABL calendar, as it sets each team up in their respective pools for the remainder of the year.

The WABL Grading process is designed to allow teams to play more teams of similar capabilities in order to allocate them with more certainty. In Age Groups with over 40 teams, teams 41 and beyond will not participate in WABL for that year. The 2021 WABL Grading tournament will take place over the following weekends:
