Matches start: 7:45pm sharp

Competition Rules:

  • Each fortnight, the player pool will be those who have registered and are present by the 7:40 cutoff.
  • 5 players from the player pool will be put into a box in descending order, based on the current ladder ranking*. E.g if players in position 1, 2, 4, 6, 7 are present they will go into box 1 etc.
  • Each player in the box will play with everyone else once (should be 4 matches)
  • Matches are best of three games, FIRST TO 21 (no extension), if it goes to a 3rd game it's FIRST TO 5 (no extension) 
  • Winners of each box go up a ranking, losers go down. There will only be 1 winner and loser of each box
  • Winner will be established by number of matches won, if 2 or more players have won the same amount of matches, the winner will be decided by the amount of games won, then by total points won.
  • If you don't show up for 2 competition nights in a row, you will automatically go down one ranking (after any change in ranking as a result of the competition night)
  • Males and Females play on the same ladder
  • 15 spots are reserved for Masters, Vets and Super Vets by the cutoff time. Registration on the day will be on a first in first serve basis for any remaining spots.
  • 7:30pm warm up
  • 7:40pm cutoff for guaranteed/reserved spots
  • First games are to be playing at 7:45pm
  • Shuttles are provided
  • Mystery prizes for people placed in top 3 at the end of the competition

*initial rankings and late entries will be ranked by the discretion of the Wellington North Badminton events team.
