How It Works

Handicap system: 

  • Teams will be given a handicap “score” based on their ability that they take into each game. For example, if your handicap is +15, and your opponent’s 0 you start each game 15/0 ahead. 
  • Some Teams will have minus scores to take into each game. For example a handicap or +30 against a team that has a handicap of -15 you will start each game at 30 /- 15
  • All tiebreaks will be best of 8 points and the handicap score will change to that of the difference between the 2 teams. For example, a team that has a handicap of +30 and the other team has a handicap of -15 then the tiebreak will start at 3/0 as this is the difference between the 2 handicaps.


  • Each game will be the best of 3 sets 
  • Each draw is run as a straight knock-out, i.e. if you win then you progress to the next round. If you lose there will be a back draw to play in with this being to 1 full set 
  • Each Team is drawn randomly and placed into the draw. There are no seeded due to the handicap system. Therefore, some teams may get lucky and given a bye into the 2nd round.
