This competition is being run on a round robin basis (11 games to be played between each pairings– no tie break game) with four pairings from each group going through to the finals on Friday evening. Qualifiers include the pairing with the top score in each section together with the next best overall score in the group.
Only one pairing from each section can be considered for a place in the final spot ( if a tie, the winning pairing go through) and should a tie exist between pairings from different sections same will go down to which pairing won the most matches. In the unlikely event that a tie still exists a match with the best of 5 games will be played.
As a result of the increased number of pairing involved in this competition and the variation in standard within each section, the following change has been introduced in an attempt to bring some balance to the competition.
The pairing who lose the 1st game begin the 2nd game plus 15, if they lose the 2nd game they begin the 3rd game plus 30 and continue to begin games at plus 30 until they win a game at which stage they revert to plus 15 and back to love all if they win the next game. This will continue through all round robin games with the score advantage being available to both pairings. Please check with the tournament committee member available on the night should you need further clarification on this change.
Reminder – Friday 22nd is finals night with a hot supper supplied and the presentation of prizes and silverware by Augustus Cullen Law who have kindly sponsored this event.
Looking forward to seeing you all down in the club over the next week enjoying this event.
Jean Baker – Club Captain.
