The event is setup so that there are communities, teams and individuals

Participants can take part as an individual or as part of a team, and perhaps also be part of a Community.

For teams, we recommend a team size of no more than 10 people.

A Community is a collection of teams. These are great for large workplaces, schools, gyms, unis or clubs where more than 10 people are expecting to take part.
