The competition will be a doubles competition run every other Sunday at 6pm starting 17th of April 2022. The exact number of Sundays will depend on the number of teams.
Players will enter individually and be assigned to teams by the organisers. Captains will be chosen by the organisers from those who have said they are willing to be captains.
Each team will consist of 8 people. The team members will be ordered by ability from 1 to 8. Team order will be agreed between the organisers and the team captain.
On any given Sunday only 6 team members ( three pairs ) of a team will play. Experience has shown that there are often reasons why people can not make every single Sunday. These will be chosen by the captain and depending on availability and fairness. The top two ranked players of the 6 will be the ‘advanced’ level pair on the night, the next two will be the ‘intermediate’ pair and the next to will be ‘improvers/beginners’ pair.
If numbers allow there will be an additional reserve pool of players who cannot commit to the competition but want to take part if there is a one off opportunity. If a team cannot field three pairs then the captain will be able to draw on this pool of reserves to fill their roster.
On any given Sunday the organizers will decide which team is matched against which. Over the course of the competition every team should play every other team once or twice depending on the number of teams.
On any given Sunday each of the three pairs from a team will play the same level pair from the team they are matched with on that Sunday.
