Monthly Tournaments

We will hold round robin tournaments every month. 2 flights (A,B) maximum of 4 teams per flight to keep it manageable. Entrance fee is $5 / team / month paid towards the prize of a tube of RSL #1 birdies. Each team must play the other teams at least 3 matches (best of 3 games) that count towards the official record.

Entrance

Before the 1st of the month, the double teams have to register in the Slack Channel #[MM-YYYY]-tournament and announce the team.

Because we are playing a lot of matches, you and your partner must try to be there on most of the Wednesday and Saturday sessions to give your opponents a chance to play. You should plan to be in Bintang for at least 5 days in April in order to qualify.

The teams will be split into A and B flights. A are the current Advanced 1 players (Justin, Martin, Avinash K., Varun, Malinka, Bonic, Sangam). B is everyone else. (If you believe if should be in A, you can challenge for it, contact Tony and Richard for details)

Rules:

Within each flight, the teams play round robin and track winning scores on Slack #[MM-YYYY]-tournament. Tony & Richard will tally up scores and announce at the end of each week. The winning team at the end of the month gets a tube of RSL Gold #1 as bragging rights.

You must play 3 matches, against 3 teams to qualify to be ranked at the end.

4 teams total in each flight. One person cannot form 2 teams, because then you cannot play against yourself, and you need 3 matches against each team in the round robin — the following month you can form another team

You can form teams with someone else in another flight, but you have to play in the upper flight. Flight A player cannot play in flight B. You can form XD, but compete against regular doubles.

Example:

Say April has 4 teams. During April Team 1 needs to play 3 matches against against team 2, team 3 and team 4.

Team 1 v team 2 to play 3 matches (during April)
Team 1 v team 3 to play 3 matches (during April)
Team 1 v team 4 to play 3 matches (during April)
Team 2 v team 3 to play 3 matches (during April)
Team 2 v team 4 to play 3 matches (during April)
Team 3 v team 4 to play 3 matches (during April)

Winning and ranking

Teams with the most number of winning matches in the flight wins the flight and wins the RSL Gold #1 tube.

The winning team can pair up again for the next month, but will be handicapped, TBD by Tony & Richard.

In case of a tie, the number of games won will be used as tie breaker, if that is tied, the number of points will be used as a tie breaker.

Between flights champion (optional)

The winner of flight A and flight B could choose to play against each other in 1 final match. The looser of the match will forfeit their tube of birdies to the winning team.
