This is a group for anyone interested in playing friendly but competitive Badminton doubles. The competitive ladder will make you match fit, and improve your game.
It is aimed at INTERMEDIATE and above level players
1st Hour for Ladder Tournament, 2nd/3rd Hour for free play. Participation in the ladder is optional.
There are 4 courts
Every week 6 or 7 players will rotate pairings and battle it out on each court. Their individual points tally will determine their position in the group. Top 2 players promoted to higher court, Bottom 2 players relegated to lower court.
RULES IN ANY LADDER MATCH.
1. In each game the scoring will be up to 21 with no setting....i.e first to 21.
2. If a mixed pair plays against a mens pair, the mixed pair will start on +4 and the mens pair on 0.
3. If a ladies pair plays against a mens pair, the ladies pair will start on +7 and the mens pair on 0.
4. If a ladies pair plays against a mixed pair, the ladies pair will start on +4 and the mixed pair on 0.
In all other matches where the pairings are equal, the scores will start on 0.
EVERY POINT COUNTS. No matter where you start in the ladder, after a period of time you will end up playing games with people of similar ability. If you improve, you are likely to go up the ladder but you will then be playing against harder opponents. What is that expression? CREAM RISES TO THE TOP. If you do not play regularly you will drop down the ladder. Any new player will have to start on the bottom court, even if their name is LIN DAN.
Good luck, and play fair.
