Rules/Format

Doubles:  All teams will be placed into an initial (seeded) round- robin of 4 teams (assuming events are full).

Round Robin Games are played to 11 points – win by one point.

The top 2 teams will enter “A” flight single elimination round.  Each game is played 15 points – win by 2 points.

The bottom 2 teams in each round-robin group will be entered in the “B” flight single elimination round, Each game is played to 15 points – win by 2 points.

In the event that the doubles events are not fully registered appropriate adjustments will be made.

Singles:  Format will be determined based on the number of entries – round robins will be used when feasible.

Notes: 

  • Only one time-out permitted per game.
  • Tie-breaks in round-robins will be decided successively by head-to-head results (games won);  then the least number of points conceded. This approach will be used to resolve the order of those teams/players involved in the tie

Referees

Referees will be provided for the semi-final and final matches.
