Tournament Setup

  • Tournament format - singles, doubles or teams.

  • Cycles - rounds can be repeated (eg play everyone twice)

  • Venue


  • Participants - from 4 to 24.

    • For singles and doubles tournaments, individuals are selected. For a team tournaments, teams are selected.

    • For singles/team format, an odd number of participants will result in each player/team having a bye

    • The doubles tournament format uses the Whist Cyclic algorithm where each player partners with each other player once and against each other player twice. For a doubles tournament, the number of players will normally be a multiplication of 4. However matches can also be generated for 5 and 9 players with each player having one bye.


  • Finals Playoff - Elimination playoff is available for Singles and Team events. Choice of top 2, 4 or 8. Option for a bronze (3rd place) playoff. Players will be determined at the end of the rounds based on the leaderboard results.


  • Match Scheduling

    • Add a location for each match - these are defined under the Settings option. If the locations are not setup in the right order, you can switch off this setting and save the tournament setup. Once the locations are then updated, you can put the locations switch back on and when the tournament setup is saved again, the matches will be updated

    • Set location constraint if required - eg 4 courts are required to complete a round but you only have 2 courts available

    • Schedule match start times for each round by setting the tournament start date/time and the interval between rounds eg 1 hours, 1 week etc

    • Whenever the interval is edited, the match start times will be updated. Matches times can be individually updated on the Matches view


  • Tournament Points

    • Set points for win, draw, loss, points factor & results differential. All or any of the points variables can be applied

    • Win, loss draw points will be allocated based on the overall score

    • Points factor - the score for that player/team will be multiplied by the points factor

    • Results differential -the difference between the scores will be multiplied by the results differential and added to the points for the winner and subtracted from the points for the loser. For example, if the Results Differential value is 0.1 and the score is 21-16, the winner will get +0.5 (21-16 * 0.1) and the loser will get -0.5 (16-21 * 0.1) added to the any other points allocated

    • See examples below under Leaderboard..


Notes:

  • Participants cannot be changed after the matches are generated, nor can the tournament format or number of cycles be changed

  • A tournament is deemed complete once a score has been recorded for each match

  • Tournaments can be edited, copied and deleted.
