To most of you who live nearby I have already mentioned this idea. But for everyone else and those who are interested I have arranged the season’s format.
The idea is to have 2 on 2 tournaments either every week or bi-weekly, depending on attendance and interest. The fun catch to this is that every tournament, you will have to partner up with someone new whom you haven’t partnered up with before.
This is really just my idea for competitive practice sessions, and not to have pot prizes involved. Having a different partner each week is not fair to lay money down for.
Each week I will keep track of each individual player’s scores and results. At the end of the season, the player’s scores will then decide the seating chart for a singles tourney where money will be involved for pot prizes.
How the scoring system works:
In order to sign up for the first time, you must show up with a partner who will be your teammate to start off the season. Players on a team will be categorized as either A or B. The A players from a team will play other A players, and B will play B. Since the 2 on 2 tourney will prevent every A and B player from playing each other, they will have to play each other separately outside of tourney. Every win a player gets will count as a point. After the results of a tourney, the next week will switch half of the A players into B, and half of B will become A. Once a new mix of A and B players are concluded, then every player will get to choose a new partner to play with that week(A teams up someone from B). This cycle continues until an even number of games have been played by everyone, and everyone has played everyone at least once.
How does Wednesday nights work? If not a week night, then it what weekend day works best?
And most importantly…Who wants in?
