WHAT IS THIS COMPETITION?
The competition has players enter in teams of a minimum of 3 players, and will face off against other teams in 3 match ties. Players will rank themselves 1, 2 and 3. Each player within their team will play with each other against the other teams’ pairings. E.g ranks 1 and 2 will play against the other teams rank 1 and 2. Depending on entries, on each night your team will play against 1 or 2 other teams. We will be using the round robin format, however, if the number of teams is greater than nine (9) an alternative system may be used. This will be advised before the competition begins. Scoring shall be the best of three (3) games to 21 points with no extension.
WHEN IS IT STARTING?
The competition starts Thursday 11th November, and goes for 4 weeks only. Play starts at 7.00pm sharp. The lights will go out at 10.00pm on all nights of play.
WHAT IF SOMEONE CANT MAKE IT ONE WEEK?
It is player's responsibility to find a replacement should they become unavailable. A team who defaults their games because of failure to appear will be charged a penalty fee of $20.00. This amount will be invoiced to the team who defaulted, and will grow exponentially after multiple no shows.
Only available spaces for 12 teams, so sign up early to guarantee a spot.
A reasonable number of shuttles will be provided for each night of play. If there are insufficient shuttles to finish the nights play, players will need to provide the shortfall.
Male and female players will be playing in the same competition.
Teams will receive 10 points for each match won, plus an extra 15 points for winning their Tie. These points will be kept on a tally sheet which will be displayed on the notice board behind the courts and published on our website.
If an event does not get the minimum required number of entries, we will let players know before the first week of competition and issue a refund to those players.
