I was and still am a member of Essex jamaat, which would be considered a small jamaat and normally when a tournament comes around I have represented Essex/Wessex jamaat without any problem. I have been a member of Stanmore jamaat since childhood and so you could say that I have dual membership of 2 jamaats (Essex and Stanmore). However, I am not and have never been a member of Stanmore Jafferies, which is the body which runs the sports clubs and MAMT tournament entry for Stanmore Jamaat and have not played in any weekly sports practices organized by them ever. Although I could join Stanmore Jafferies now, it would be too late for me to enter into the tournament to represent Stanmore Jamaat. My question is am I still able to join Wessex Jamaat’s team for entry into the tournament (as I did last year) as I am still a member of Essex Jamaat and have not joined Stanmore Jafferies? Or would I be considered part of Stanmore Jamaat and rule number 20 will be applied to me.
Yes you can join Wessex Jamaat as far as you are a member of Essex Jamaat sports club and not a member of Stanmore Jafferies sports club.
