ABOUT PongPlanet RR LEAGUES
The weekly Round Robin Tournament is held every Sunday at PongPlanet Club. Practice starts at noon. League director will have our leagues processed for USATT League Ratings. This league is for all-level players. League director will give you an estimate rating if you don't have one.
The league director starts off each league night/day with a printout of potential league players, in order of rating. The format is to put the top five players in the list who show for the league meeting are put in the top group, the next five are put in the second group, and so on down the list. If the number of players in the league is not divisible by five, then the number of players in some groups would be adjusted. Players are then hand-written onto blank RR group sheets. (League directors may adjust the number of players per group to best fit their needs.)
Players play all other members in their group. The goal is to win the group, and to improve one’s league rating. Recommended format is best of five to 11. (Some leagues play best of three to 11, so as to allow time for more matches.)
At the start of the league, players will start out with either USATT ratings or estimated ratings. League ratings will change in the same way that USATT ratings change, using the same rating chart. Ratings will be calculated online when results are inputted by the League Director. Unrated players will be given a rating of 800, if no better estimate is available. (These ratings may be adjusted later as more info is available.) Tournament director should put in estimated ratings for new players, if they can give a fairly accurate estimate.
